Friday the 13th - Lucky Days


I don’t necessarily believe in luck per say.  I believe more in the old saying that the harder you work the better luck you will have which really translates better into you’ll reap what you sow!
As people grow up and learn of the conventions of the societies they inhabit they also learn of the superstitions that many people have.  Among those are such things as its bad luck to let a black cat cross your path, don’t walk under ladders and that Friday the thirteenths are unlucky days.  As we grow and mature we each decide which superstitions we will participate in and which ones we will ignore.
Growing up a strange thing happened.  I realized on Friday’s that fell on the Thirteenth that I had the best, almost inspired and unusually lucky days!  Because of this weird anti superstitious phenomenon I have gotten trained to get very excited on Friday the 13ths.  I don’t have to do anything out of the ordinary the days are just blessed at every turn, special unexpected things happen.  Through the years these wonderful days have eclipsed important and special anniversaries, birthdays and the best planned days off.

I actually get wild with anticipation of what these days will offer up to me.  I can’t explain it.  I don’t understand it.  It just happens with every one of these days in such a variety of unexpected and surprising ways that it reinforces my anticipation and rejoicing for these days.

I have relayed that I do think finding a penny heads up is good luck for a day.  For an entire 24 hours from the time I find one I will have awesome good fortune.  I thank God for his tiny and great blessings and for looking after my well-being every time I slide a found penny in my pocket.  I will keep this special blessing in the form of an old penny in my left pants pocket until the entire twenty-four period is over.
So I am superstitious but in a very grateful and thankful kind of way for the many blessings, gifts, and special ways God and the Universe grant favors towards my undeserving soul.
So Happy Friday the 13 th.  Oh and it has already started today!!  It is unbelievable!
