I LOVE Friday the 13th's!!!

Yes, today is one of several Friday the 13th's in 2012. The Elf and I got married on the 13th (not a Friday), however we've had several Friday the 13th Wedding Anniversaries in the past 27 years. I've always considered our finding each other and going through life together as one of the best blessings that I've been given, so the 13th is LUCKY for matter what day of the week....

This brings me to my thought of the day.... Isn't life and all of it's magic (and sometimes not so magic :), just an exercise in PERCEPTION. Our attitudes and beliefs make any situation "GREAT" or "BAD" depending on how we want to perceive it! Yesterday was a prime example that I was a grumpy pants from the start. Why? Well, there were several reasons, but normally I don't get my panties in a bunch over them....

I'm a big believer if you have nothing nice to say, then don't saything at all.... hence, NO POST yesterday. Yes, I realize I will have days in the coming year that I'm going to post something that makes me frustrated or angry, however on Day 3 of my journey, I didn't want to go there. LOL!

Ultimately I ironed out my "grumpy pants" by making my mind STOP and list 5 things that I am thankful for...breathed in and out...and decided to give myself a break for the day. I know it was for the best because I woke up this morning with a CREATIVE BRAINSTORM! Ahhhhh, now that's what's best with a cup of coffee!

I am so glad you like the number 13 This is my lucky number also, I was born on the 13th, so was my daughter, my father and my sister and it is in our house number and account number. If this isn't luck than I don't know. And we have a black cat.
