It’s only 9:00 am and my day looks like it’s heading to Crazytown! If this morning is any indication, I am in for a real doozy! It all started with elementary Math homework (remember, I have a little one) then proceeded to a frenzied search for my car keys. Oh, but it didn’t end there! Hell no! How about this…I get in the car and it promptly tells me that I am low on fuel. Lunacy at its best!
I am clairvoyant so I know what you are thinking. You are thinking that I could have avoided these problems had I been more proactive. Frankly you are right! Yes, I should keep my car keys in a designated location. Yes, I could have gotten gas on my way home from the last trip. Yes, I could have settled homeworkgate last night. However, at this point, all of those solutions are completely academic. So what do I do here and now? The answer? I go get my shamrock!
Allow me to explain. According to DNA ancestry reports, I am 2% Irish. Clearly, that’s not much at all! But let me tell you…these Irish grandpappies are VERY vocal for their number! In fact, they have been chattering in my ears for years. But, to be honest, all of their yacking likely led me to find, not one, but two four leaf clovers in my lifetime! While I can’t be sure of a causal link, I have noticed that things usually work out well for me; despite this morning’s events.
Anyway, one day while shopping, I noticed an alabaster kelly green shamrock at a nearby store. It reminded me so much of those lucky four leaf clovers that I found all those years ago. Needless to say, I immediately bought and kept it close ever since. Don’t get me wrong, I realize that this shamrock probably can’t really make ‘good’ things happen, but it does remind me to believe that ‘good’ things can happen. Maybe that’s what my couple- two Irish ancestors were trying to tell me 🙂
Now, I need some good things to happen so where’s my shamrock?
*What reminds you that good things can happen?
