I found 2, 4 leaf clover today and 1 last week. I've looked from time to time for years but never found any before this past week. I've prayed for family reunion and asked to find a four leaf clover for a sign of hope. It's either answer to prayer or it's cause my old blind dog walks so slow all I have to do is count clover leaves on our long walks, by long I don't mean distance.
