Her big soulful eyes and large nostrils reminded me of the Introduction in my book, Spiritual Lessons from Nature, where I recount an experience I had as a toddler with a big cow yookin' at me through a fence on the farm.
In spite of that strong inner knowing, I headed out to the parking lot empty-handed. That's when my conscience began to get the better of me. Holy Cow! Hadn't she appeared to have had "a brush" with an artist's palette? Wasn't I looking to add more color to my life?
Synchronicity was at play.
Convinced, I returned to round her up and bring her home. Now that purposeful cow hangs behind my desk as a daily reminder to add more color to your life.
Just for fun, I found an interesting comment online regarding the symbolism of cows. "Cows have large eyes that see all. The stare may be hypnotic and will tear down one's walls to find the soul." That's what happened to me both times.
Cows ultimately show us how to honor others and nurture ourselves.
Love and joyful blessings. Watch for the happy things of God to come to you today.
