Today is my Birthday! I always called 13 my lucky number. As soon as I was old enough to hear about suuperstitions, I checked to be sure that I was not born on a Friday, the thirteenth! No I was born on a Saturday. My mother couldn’t remember for certain after having eight kids! According to folklore I will work my whole life. That does not sound so bad to me. If I ‘m working, I must be healthy enough to work in mind and body.
Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child must work for a living,
But the child that’s born on the Sabbath day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.
