Clover to Butterfly Handmade Card by Cynla

It happened like this..

My mom went to meet a friend for lunch. They sat down (after buying some Quickdraw lottery tickets), and a dragonfly “parked on my opai.” (Which might be the Japanese word for chest or her own word – she makes words up.) Anyways, her friend Jerry told her not to chase it away – it’s good luck.

The dragonfly was hanging there for 15-20 minutes. My mom finished her meal, and her game came up. “I bet 6 numbers.. right, and they all came out and then I got 3x [the winnings]. I never play 6 numbers, I only play 5 numbers.” All of her 6 numbers came out.. the dragonfly flew off and she won over $3,000.

Morals of the story – keep an open mind and be nice to bugs. Maybe buy 6 numbers instead of 5 sometimes.

* For her birthday after this happened, I made my mom a lucky clover turning to dragonfly card – they’re similar in basic shape and I love seeing nature repeat itself. In this case, the luck aspect of clovers and dragonflies was also repeated. The pieces were handcut from origami paper.
