Friday the 13th

What’s with number 13 anyway? It was then believed that number 13 brings bad omen to everyone. Have you noticed those tall buildings without a 13th floor on their elevators? How about those villages without the 13th street? Well, when that Friday before Easter is called “Good Friday”, Friday the 13th is then believed to be a “Bad Friday”. Everyone says anything associated with number 13 brings bad luck. I was about to accept it as true since my real name has 13 letters on it and my life since childhood has been a bit hard. I was bullied in school and grew up a teen with low self esteem and been fastidious. I was about to believe everything not until I chose to mature on things. I left behind all the bad thoughts in the past, forget about my 13-lettered name and chose to move on with life. I was in my mid 20’s then when I got to meet a nice man in the most unexpected place at the most inconvenient date—Friday the 13th___ and guess what… this man proposed to me after 2 years and we got married. Everything turned too well with the blessings of the Almighty. Indeed, love conquers all! Now, who says Friday the 13th is an unlucky day? Not for me…
