Dragonfly Candle and Good Omen

Ever since I took an interest in dragonflies I've noticed them more when they show up.  And it seems there's always something meaningful going on when I see a dragonfly. 

A couple of years ago I was shopping in a dollar store and found a green candle with a dragonfly carved into it.  I thought it was the coolest thing and bought it.  I never lit the candle because I didn't want the dragonfly on it to get melted down.  Eventually the candle went missing and I didn't even notice at first.  When I did realize that it wasn't where I put it I was a little sad because it was my favorite thing in my room. 

Tonight while I was trying to organize the clutter on my desk, my chapstick rolled off and went behind the desk.  I thought, "great, now I'll never get my chapstick back."  But in the winter I need my chapstick more than anything, so got out a flashlight and decided to try and find it.  And while I was down there I found my dragonfly candle!  It was so strange to see it again after years of it being missing.  Everything has changed since I last saw that candle and not all of it for the better.  But seeing the candle again reminded me of a time where things were still good.  Before heartache and the reality of becoming an adult. 

I know it sounds crazy, but finding the dragonfly candle feels like a good omen.  I'm planning on moving to a new city this summer and finding the dragonfly candle after years of missing it feels like a sign that things are going to turn out okay.
