Found the (middle) Pelican at my IL’s house on Thurs, all I could do was smile as my eyes welled up…. (explanation follows) #MeantToBe

#Project365 #1PhotoADay #Day291of365 #Project365AlicetheBrit

Full explanation….. 
On Oct 2nd, my  #1PhotoADay  I posted was a pic showing the little pelican I gave M3 in her college care package - I also explained it’s significance & why I got one for each of the 4 M&M’s on eBay…. 

So imagine my amazement & moment of “Well that was meant to be” when I went to my IL’s house on Thursday, when hubby & FIL returned from their NC trip, to see FOR THE FIRST TIME, (though by the dust on it, it’s been there for a while!) this pelican thermometer figurine my MIL had bought herself (?) who know how long ago… IS THE EXACT SAME DESIGN… 

It actually made me tear up & say to myself “Hi Joanie, I miss you too”… 

It is hollow, has a hole in the bottom, & is the perfect final pelican I was still searching for to put part of Joanie’s spirit in to put up at Bertsnest, the house in NC she loved so much.
