Good Morning LP family,

 

I would love your assistance with this event that happened last night. Upon returning home, my son(16) and daughter(18) found a huge brown spider in my youngest son's(8) bedroom. It is what most people refer to as a ground spider. It had a small body and long spindly legs.  I begged them not to kill it but they did.

 

Please help! I once heard that spiders are good luck insects! Thanks!

 

All the best to all of us today and EVERY day!

              I forgot about this until I read doller's post.  Ever since I read Harvest's post about paying attention

              to everything around us. Every now and then a moth or two from outside will see the light I have on

              at night next to the computer and try and get through the screen.  Well LAST night, the BIGGEST

              moth, butterfly-sized moth was out there.  And I said, "Can you help me pick the numbers?"  Well

              the moth (?)  landed on the screen for a second when I said that and then it flew away. Before

              that it was frantically trying to get in. But it calmed down when I said, that, like it was trying to tell

              me something.  Any thoughts about what the moth was trying to tell me?  Blue Angel

               

              Thanks,

              Karinda

                OMGoodness Karinda!!!

                I just got goosebumps reading your post! When i called my aunt to tell her about my spider incident, she related one of her own.

                 

                 She told me that as she was preparing her Sunday meal, she saw at her front screen door a moth(here in the Bahamas we call them "money bats" as we believe they come to bring those fortunate to see them money). It was trying to get inside. As she turned away, ANOTHER one was at the back screen door of the kitchen.. She asked my uncle to open the door and let it in to bring her money and he refused.

                She said she saw them almost simultaneously. WOW! This is amazing. I am off to call her now to read your post!

                    Holy smokes dollar! :s  I'm so glad that I responded. I wasn't sure if I should at first because I didn't want

                    to digress from your question about the spider, but I forgot all about the moth until I saw your post. 

                    And I have to tell you that this was the BIGGEST moth I've ever seen in my life! I'm not exaggerating. :o

                    The little ones are attracted to the light out our window because it's very dark outside, so I know why they

                    come to the screen, but the one last night was as big as some butterflies. I wish I could remember exactly what I said to it ... but I don't.  I think I said something like, "Can you help me?" But I don't remember if

                    I specifically said, "Do you know the numbers?" What?  ( Yes, this is what desperation has come down to

                    here in NJ regarding winning the lottery. Now I'm asking insects if they can help me pick the numbers! LOL )

                    Blessings,

                    Karinda

                        Sounds like a Daddy Longlegs spider.

                        They don't hurt anybody. They should have just put it outside if the sight of it bothered them.

                        I consider them the "friendly" spiders.

                        I consider killing anything bad luck unless it's harmful, dangerous, or you intend to eat it.
