Number 5 was not lucky for my old blind dog. looked down and found my 5th and 6st, while plucking my good fortune my dog wondered on top of a retaining wall. I ran torward her as she stepped off the wall falling 3 feet to the pavement. She is OK

      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.
