Today I am grateful to be born on the 13th, thank you, thank you, thank you. Is the number 13 lucky? It is for me! My maternal Grandfather was born on the 13th and I am his 13th grandchild, and I was born on the 13th. After I was born he sent me a card telling me, I was their “lucky one”, due to this. After Mom passed on my birthday, Lexi reminded me of this. What a way to compete the story, thanks Mom!
This doesn’t have anything to do with 13, just one of my favorite pictures of Mom. I used it in my art and it was published!
56 years ago today, my family flew a pink pillow case to let the neighbors know a little girl was born. 30 years later, after three days of labor with my first born, my Parents hung a blue pillow case (or maybe just blue fabric) to the neighbors Damian arrived safe and sound. With the passing of my Mother yesterday, I thought it was very appropriate to fly a flowered flag today, to alert all, to enjoy my Mother’s blessings raining down on them.
