Lucky charm

The other day, while sitting in the grass at the playground, I said to Ryan, “You know, I’ve never found a four-leaf clover, ever.” As a kid, I’d sit in patches of clover, looking and looking for the elusive lucky charm, never finding one.

So imagine my surprise when just a moment after saying that, I found one.

And then another.

And another.

I must have found more than 30 of them. Someone said that the genetic mutation in the plant that allows for one stem to have four leaves means that it’s likely to find another on the same plant. How cool.

It’s pretty amazing what can happen when you take the time to slow down and really look around you once in awhile.

I’m now the luckiest girl, ever, I’m sure of it.

    1. It is, totally. Kids find amazing things because they’re always taking in their surroundings. šŸ™‚

  1. Guess who’s going to be out in the backyard tomorrow, bum-to-grass? ; )
