I remember about a day or two after Anna had passed, I had a long weekend while in Chile, so I went to visit my host mom’s daughter. I happened to be facetiming my boyfriend while in my room and I mentioned that there was a ladybug on a lamp. He told me that ladybugs are often reincarnated people. From then on, I saw ladybugs everywhere. I remember walking up a staircase during a school observation and saw a ladybug sitting on the railing; a ladybug landed on my shirt while I was enjoying a wine tour; a ladybug landed on my friend’s shoulder and seemed to linger a little longer than it normally would just to keep eye contact with me. Ladybugs became such a normal sighting that I made a point to say “Hi Anna” and hold a short conversation with her every chance I got. I knew Anna was (and still is!) looking over me every single day.
