Few people know that when I was a child I was fascinated by the praying mantis. My dad knew this and today while I was watering the plants I saw a praying mantis on the memorial stone I made for him. Originally, I tried to put this garden stone at my dad's grave, but there were rules against leaving objects there. So, I put the stone in the corner of the green house. Can you imagine how surprised and happy I was to see a praying mantis on that stone?
I haven't seen a praying mantis in years. It's easy to rationalize these signs away, but I have faith.
