This is exactly how a mother felt and was so touched that she was actually lucky enough to see two at the same time, that all she had to do was share a cute snapshot on Facebook.
“I’ve always been drawn to ladybugs … I don’t know what it is. I just feel connected to them, ”she wrote.
“This morning I found a mom on my bed and a baby ladybug on my bed and I have the feeling that today is my day and something beautiful is about to happen!
“Do you all have lucky signs? Share your stories – feel positive. “
