As some of you might know, I turned 50 years old a few weeks ago. It's actually neither here nor there for me -- I think age is an attitude, not a number! But my younger daughter thinks it's cool that I'm now "half way to 100" and she wanted me to have a special present this year.
She had a jar sent to me, filled with little scraps of paper; each one has a different message printed on it. I've been trying to figure out where I could post these, and then it hit me -- why not here? That way, everyone can share in some daily sunshine with me! After all, they're printed on yellow paper!
Now... I can go back and post the notes I have pulled out starting on January 6, or I can start all over again today... What do you all think?
Today's Message: "A best friend is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find but lucky to have."
This one is so neat, because my younger daughter, Lauren, has always had a knack for finding four-leaf clovers. I'd have them pressed into the current book I was reading, would find them "hiding" in the china cabinet, or have little cups of water with them floating like lilypads... Yes, I was the kind of mom who would put dandelions in water when my girls would bring them in to me! So when I see a four-leaf clover, I think of my lovely little independent Lauren, and that brightens my day... *smile*
