Sharing Good Wishes and Four-Leaf Clovers

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*

Very nice idea, I would love to share your daily notes.

I too had dandelions in a cup, our girls (our boys too) had many tee shirts with the tell tail, little round grey/black stains, from the stems bleeding and touching their clohtes.

My Dad used to say he was as old as his tounge and a little older than his teeth.

My mother doesn't like to tell her age so Her answer to , How old are you?  was always:

Age is just a number and mine is unlisted.

Wonderful story. Please continue to share. My DD also used to bring me dandelions and whatever flower she would find in the fields when she was small and I would keep them on a vase on the dining table. My DGD, however, looks for bugs and asks me to collect them for her.

What a fabulous gift your DD gave you. I love daily messages and hearing yours will be a treasure indeed.

Thanks for the pleasure of reading your daily messages.  What a treat they are.  It is so nice to have

a daughter that would take the time to do this and in such a fun way.  I would really like to go back to

the begining.  You will always remember your fiftyth.

I think your DD had a lovely idea. It would be wonderful to read all the previous daily notes. The story was heartwarming. So please do share the daily notes of sunshine.
