SoCS: A Lucky Pig’s Lullaby and Angel Clouds in the Sky

33 Comments

Here’s our prompt for today from our host, Linda Hill:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “luck.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Is there really any such thing as luck? Anything is possible. But I think more times than not, we make our own luck. Regardless of whether we have good luck or bad luck, God can help us use the situation for something good. It might take a while. Was I lucky that my high school sweetheart found me so many years later at the perfect time? I don’t think it was luck at all. I believe it was meant to happen just that way and that my hopes and prayers nudged it along. Sometimes our prayers aren’t anwered. Or maybe they are and the answer is no, or not yet. Or wait and see. I had work to do to become ready and so did he.

Maybe animals can have good luck or bad luck. I don’t know. But the animals at the sanctary where I’ve been volunteering were lucky to be rescued from factory farms or petting zoos. Tuesday, I sang to a pig named Francis. He was trying to take a nap, but I think he liked the singing.

Do you rememember this song from the movie, Babe? It’s a sweet movie about a young pig who learns how to herd sheep. Maybe some day, more pigs will get lucky.

Was it lucky to see these angels shapes in the clouds at the beach? Maybe.

I enhanced the color to make it easier to see.

Sometimes they look like birds or angels, maybe even clouds.

  1. Happy Saturday 😍. Great post. I believe more animals will get lucky as more and more ppl go vegetarian or even vegan 🤗

  2. Lovely and uplifting post.

  3. I think Francis liked your song. I am glad he is there in the sanctuary.

  4. When it comes to luck, who knows. Sometimes, we’ve just in the right place at the right time.

  5. I think you’re right, we make our own luck.

  6. Fun post JoAnna. For some reason, I thought of the saying “when pigs fly!”. Thanks for the care and cheer.

  7. I enjoyed the song. Kinda hard to tell about the pig,though. He didn’t get up and dance, but he does seem very relaxed. When I was 10 or 11, I heard that farmers play music in dairy barns to increase milk production, so I used to go to the fence behind our house and sing to our neighbor’s cows. They didn’t walk away, at least! 🙂 Yes, I believe we make our own luck, at least to some degree. Very enjoyabel post, JoAnna. ❤ Have a great Sunday!

    • The pigs have a large fenced in area with trees, but also have access to a barn stall where he was napping. When I went into the barn, he started grunting/snorting. Some time after I started singing, he was quiet, so I think he was listening. I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Cheryl and hope you’ve had a good weekend. ❤

  8. “enjoyable” Maybe it’s time to go to bed!

  9. Thank you for sharing a wonderful post!.. I am sure that Francis enjoyed your lovely pacifying singing, whether or not he went to sleep… lovely photos showing the unique clouds!!.. as for luck “Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come”. (Author Unknown)… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

    • Thank you for this lovely comment and poem. I agree that “Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come”. Peace and blessings to you, Larry. 🙂

  10. Great story! I think our destiny is predestined, but we have the free will to do what we wish to alter it or at least make it tolerable. I think you are right about your having to get things out of the way before reconnecting with your highschool sweetheart.
