I've still got it.

Yes, I "fownd" it. I was six, okay?
   Did I ever tell you I was once a four-leaf-clover magnet? It's true. I would look for hours and hours and every time, in every patch of three-leaf clovers I'd find one with four. I'm telling you, there's one in every patch, but you're got to look. I remember the first four-leaf clover I ever found. I was six, and it was in my front yard. I felt so lucky! (Now I've got fourteen and counting taped in my journal.)

My fourteenth four-leaf-clover!
  I haven't found one since 2006. I was afraid that I'd lost my magnetism. But today, I was lying in the grass, soaking up the sun (today was the first sunny day in months) and looking for four-leafers like I used to. After about ten minutes of searching in vain, I randomly stopped at this little patch and began looking again.
   And there he was. A tiny clover with one, two, three, four leaves. I smiled and plucked him out of the ground, feeling luckier than ever. Yep, I think I've still got it.


  1. How exciting! I've never had luck in finding those....I've found one, and I was seven when that happened. It is taped in my journal too! You know, you inspired me to go find one. I'll let you know if I do!

  2. So fun, Cole! I love that you have them all taped in your journal. I've never found one. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right place. :)
