What a simple joy it is to wake up and realize it is Friday! It is the end of the work week for many, the day that deserves a check mark on the calendar for completion of those mundane duties which repeat each week so that we can be free for a walk or a stroll or a breath of fresh air. Whether or not your tasks are completed, we all feel the need to rest and collect a bit of luck on Fridays.
If I am lucky, I shall spend time in a garden today, whether it be cultured and Rococo like the ones at Dobris Castle, or fresh and optimistic like newly planted suburban ones, or decrepit and wild and mysterious like the ones that border country roads, abandoned lots and cemetaries. Whichever one I find myself in, I hope that I shall find my luck there.
What does it take to catch luck? Is it a fresh thought, an openness to the unseen? Is it prayer, or willing the future to come hurtling towards us with good intentions? When I catch my luck today, I will share it. Like clover that spreads by seed and root, we can all spread and thus share luck with a fresh simple smile and good will. We can entice optimism and kindness to grow if only we allow the idea some fertile ground in which to flourish.
Enjoy your Friday all!
Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
