      A rare 4 leafer which I would like to dedicate to Christina Victoria Grimmie, a very young singer who has been in the news from 'The Voice' and from YouTube, who passed from this earth well before her time. I had just heard of the sad, sad news and was feeling low myself as a result. I do not know Christina, but I had watched her on 'The Voice' and even had voted for her to win her season, so I knew of her...I am a 'Voice' fan and have been for a few years. I went to sit down for a spell in the backyard and spied this unusual specimen almost immediately :-( It is for you, Christina (March 12, 1994 – June 10, 2016.)

After searching for about 20 years (in Boone, NC most recently) I looked down yesterday (in our own backyard that is now in Milwaukee, WI) and this was the second clover I laid my eyes on. It kind of dawned on me that sometimes it is the little things in life (that bring us comfort and perhaps, even joy...) and that can help us to carry on in spite of all of the turmoil, stress, and sadness in life that periodically comes like waves to sweep over us in our lifetime. This one is for Christina.


  1. Beautiful post. I think we are all searching for the little things that bring us comfort in light of recent tragedies.

  2. Thank you so much NCmountainwoman for dropping on by...:-) Hugs to you. :-)

  3. Thank you Lynn. Delighted to have you stop on by. (Hugs for you, also.)
