Welcome to my humble blog and thank you for joining our little blog hop.
Once upon a time, I was a carefree little girl that was able to do what most people couldn’t…find a four leaf clover.
All I had to do was walk into a field, look down, and pick up a four leaf clover. It baffled most of the people around me. My family always teased me that I was the luckiest girl alive.
I pressed every four leaf clover I found. They were hidden in books all over my mother’s bookcase. She would open a book and a handful of them would flutter to the ground. Alas, most of them did not survive, their brittle leaves crushed with the slightest pressure.
As I grew, my knack for finding these tiny green treasures became a game to me. I would challenge my brother to see who could find one first. He has yet to win that contest. 🙂
One time when I was in college, I was horseback riding through a thick green pasture overlooking the soft valleys in Eastern Pennsylvania. I happened to glance down and saw a four leaf clover burried in the lush grasses. It stood out as if it was standing alone atop a mound of dirt, begging for me to pluck it and add it to my collection. So I did.
All those four leaf clovers and I have yet to win a fantasy vacation or the lottery. I’m still waiting on my book to be turned into a movie. Meeting Tom Hiddleston or Benedict Cumberbatch would be nice too. But the truth is, I’m already the luckiest girl in the world.
I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children, a family that loves and supports me, friends who encourage and harass me on a daily basis, and a fantastic community of authors and readers who love romance as much as I do. I don’t need a pot of gold to make me happy. I just need to be aware of how lucky I truly am every day of my life.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Wowza that’s a lot of clovers! LOL
That is…but those are only from the last ten years that survived the trip from Kentucky to Wyoming. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
My husband’s aunt, an older nun, had never found a four-leafed clover. So before she visited, I found one but didn’t pick it. When she arrived, I took her out to the yard and told her to look “there.” She found it, picked it, pressed it in her Bible, and was so thrilled.
Awwww, what a sweet thing to do. I’ve done that too. I nudged my grandmother in the direction of one once, because she told me she never found one. Love memories like that. Thanks for sharing, Michele. 🙂
I used to have a ton of four leaf clovers too. Not as many as you, though. That’s for sure. Thanks for sharing this!
They find me I think. LOL. 🙂 Thank you for visiting today.
Wow, I don’t think I have ever found a single one – I shall blame that for my lack of luck 🙂 You may need to send me one of your spares!
Shelli, if you need one, I’ll gladly send one to you. 🙂
What a wonderful story! Thank you for sharing such a special ‘lucky’ memory!
Thanks for leaving a comment, Brantwijn. I love little stories like this. I’m glad it made you smile. 🙂
I’ve only found 1 four leaf clover.
That’s still one! 🙂 Great job.
That’s a very sweet story! Thanks for sharing it. I’ve looked, but have never found a 4 leaf clover in my life. Yes, you are very lucky. 🙂
Thanks, Dianne. Keep looking, there’s still a chance you could find one. 🙂 And yes, I am a very lucky woman.
I always loved looking for fourleaf clovers and makin a headband form the flowers
I used to lay in the grass in the front yard for hours as a kid searching for them, I never found them until I stopped looking. 🙂 The headband would be gorgeous. The flowers always make me think of Thumper from Bambi. Thanks, Cathy.
Holy crapatini! That’s a gift and a half. Looks like your luck hasn’t come by way of material things yet you are very blessed. 🙂
I am very blessed. 🙂 Thanks, Kastil. May you be blessed as well in many ways.
