Terrific Tuesday!

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015 is a day for the books! It is the first time in 2015 that we will have a day with the number 13.  Let's celebrate because 13 is a great number and without it I may have been born on the 12th or 14th. It is 6 months until my birthday but really, who is counting?

My sister Linda loved to tease me and she couldn't resist when she realized I was actually born on Friday the 13th. She always said, "No wonder!" I can smile about it now but being overly sensitive, I was greatly affronted at the time.  Fast forward to my twenties and I was a regular visitor to my allergy specialist whose office was in the tallest building in town at the time. I was puzzled as I zipped up the elevator why the floors jumped from 12 to 14. After checking it out I discovered that many buildings in the country skipped the 13th floor because of superstitions.  

Many good things are found with the number 13 including this famous passage from 1 Corinthians:
"Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love."
 1 Corinthians 13:13. About 25 years ago I cross-stitched the last 6 words of this verse and for many years it sat on my dresser until the glass in the frame broke about 5 years ago. One goal I have is to replace this frame by January 31st. Once I do I will post a picture. In the meantime, take this rambling post to heart and embrace the number 13 for all the good things about it.  When we seek the good things that is what we will find.
