Today is the day for wearing green or getting pinched, four-leaf clover, and Leprechauns. Granny gave me the pendant above. She said she’d had it so long she couldn’t remember where she got it, but it was old. When I was a little girl I’d prowl through her jewelry box and it was one of my favorite pieces to look at. I always thought Granny must have found the four-leaf clover and put it in there herself.
I have never ever found a four-leaf clover although I’ve tried on more than one occasion. The truth is I haven’t ever had the patience to look for longer than a few minutes.
My sister-n-law is the queen of four-leaf clover. She can find them as fast as she can bend over and pick them.
When the girls were in high school one of them needed a four-leaf clover for a school project. I told her to go look in Granny and Pap’s yard where there was lots of clover. She came back disheartened and tired of looking for a stupid four-leaf clover. I said “Well if you can’t find one yourself you’ll have to go see Aunt Kim.” She was back in no time with not one but three four-leaf clover.
