This morning, I had a medical scare. I won't go into details but I thought I was miscarrying my baby. I dropped my oldest off at school, called the doctor, my husband and then had to wait. I had to wait over an hour or so to get into the doctor for an ultrasound. It was a very long hour. I am usually an optimist. But, I didn't have a good feeling about this. So, I sat patiently watching my youngest son play at a park near the doctor's office. My husband was meeting me there to watch my son.
So, as I sat at a park waiting for my doctor appointment, I felt a warm sensation on my right shoulder. It took a minute to register since I was busy thinking about my baby. The warm sensation was bird poop. A bird pooped on my shirt while I was sitting and thinking about my family's future. My pessimism turned to optimism. I called my sister "If a bird poops on you, isn't it good luck?" She sure was confused since I was nearly crying five minutes before on the phone with her. "Yes, I think it is."
I have no idea why people say it is good luck but it made me laugh. I went from tears of sadness to tears of laughter in one minute. Good luck or just silly? Well, my ultrasound showed a very healthy, heart beating baby. So, I will say good luck.
