Lucky Charms and Quirky Kids
I never believed in lucky charms. But one day as I was mowing the lawn, I noticed a shiny object some five yards away. I stopped the lawn tractor to go see what had caught my eye. Just as I bent over to pick up the object, the tractor exploded behind me, knocking me off my feet. Later, in the emergency room, my family told me that when I’d been brought in by ambulance, they’d found a shiny penny clutched in my hand. I now believe in lucky pennies and stop to pick them up whenever I see them.
