Sometimes we just need a little luck!
B1 is out on a bike ride when I look and see him crawling around on his hands and knees in the ditch. Legs sliding over the snow and mud and I can tell he is on the hunt for something only a six year old can appreciate. Then he finds it, or should I say them. Three huge (to him) rocks. ”Dad here are some rocks for the Irish game tonight,” B1 announces.
“Why do we need rocks?” I question back.
And here comes the answer, as if I should have already known it. ”Dad, they are gold and will give the Irish good luck tonight.” So the rocks sat on a towel, just outside the sliding glass door while we watched the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball team beat Tennessee for the first time in 20 tries. Yes I know that to those who watched it, you thought the win was because Skylar Diggins was absolutely unstoppable. But in the eyes of a six year old, his little bit of luck got the assist.
