Lucky Charms ~ by Gabby Angel


No, I am not talking about the cereal either! 😉 Although, I could ponder on the fact that there is really a cereal called Lucky Charms…Where do they come up with those cereal names anyway? Cute as can be those little marshmallow pieces, it does reel the kids in doesn’t it? Oh my goodness I started to digress before I get to my title and just what I am talking about.
Back on track…Who actually has a lucky charm? Do you believe in them? Does anyone carry one with them at all times? Do you simply have to have your lucky charm and if you lost it, oh no! Why am I writing about this today? Well, a friend of both Autumn’s and mine lost her lucky charm a few days ago. We twinnies heard all about it, what is our friend R.’s lucky charm? It’s a set of angel wings she always kept on her key chain, she had them for years and she considers them her lucky charm so to speak. I am not superstious, neither is the twinnie and we don’t have lucky charms…Sorry to disappoint!
Anyway, our friend R. was just plain ripping everything apart looking for it and just so distraught. I was ready to head over to help her search, she only lives about 5 miles away. My other thought was to try and find a replacement set of angel wings, but that wouldn’t have set well with R. she HAD to have the orginal and wouldn’t take kindly to a new set. I also wasn’t dumb enough to tell her they may be lost forever either.I am no fool, when it comes to certain things R. does denial quite well.I had already reminded her, that her angels were always around her. Yeah, she knew that but husband G. had gotten them for and they were special!
 So, I was getting ready to head out the door, anything to help out a friend, right? My phone rings and it’s R. again and she was all calmed down! Yay, her teenage son to the rescue…He had found the angel wings in her car! Peace was restored and R. had settled down from the panic attack and mad search she was on. We talked for a short while, agreeing to meet up in a couple days for a scheduled get together…Yes, I reassured her the twinnie would be coming along, too. Hanging up, I must tell you…My mind was whirling with this lucky charm business. How can a simple object be cause or reason for if things go well, or they don’t? Why do some people insist on carrying them around and like our friend R. just devasted when said lucky charm goes missing?
Well, that seems to be my question of the day for you kind readers. Who carries a lucky charm in their possession? Who thinks they are silly or is of the mindset…We make our own luck? Inquiring twinnies would love to hear your opinion! 🙂 🙂

Seven “X” Seven Link Award


Well, I have to say Gabby and I are both a bit overwhelmed 🙂 Thank you so much, http://loriannfranks.wordpress.com/, Lori you surprised us.  We are both honored and again, thank you!! I have to say, we both love your writing and you have the most wonderful sense of humor 🙂

Yes and as Lori says, I am finding that with most Blog Awards on WordPress there are stipulations that must be met upon acceptance of the coveted award. So, with the 7X7 Link Award the first thing you have to do is tell something about yourself that nobody knows. Let’s see what we can say 😉 since I am writing this I could tell you all loads of things about Gabby 😉 Kidding!!

As for the things no one knows about us… well for me, I have three tattoos, I don’t think anyone here knows about them. I, being Autumn, the twin who does random things, got them long ago, and don’t regret them. I have promised the man who I love, the love of my life, well, I’ve promised him no more tattoos, and I really did want one more.

Gabby has a heart shaped scar on her right wrist from a burn, at the exact same place I have my  rose tattoo It’s a really nice scar, I must say, if you have to have a scar.

Now comes the 7X7 links to my pieces I feel are worthy to link up:

Friends ~ by Autumn Sunshine


The tears

and the fears

only mirror

what is inside

we sometimes hide

our feelings too well

we think no one can tell

the hurt and pain

pouring like rain

But those  we call our friends

can see and they end

our silence…

try to mend

our sorrows

and save tomorrow

as the fears disappear in the smoke

and the feelings we spoke

are open and free

so we can be

at peace again

The person we call “friend” did not give up…

How lucky and blessed

to have guessed

and untangled the mess…

My Friend~ By Autumn Sunshine


My friend

you send

you mend

and never bend

the truth…

I guess we know

it really does show

the bond we share

the never ending care

it’s always fair

to say, OK

someday and in some way

we met across the miles

and I guess we’re blessed

Friends like you

are always true

So I send you greetings from afar…

You make me smile

and I say hello, let’s talk awhile

and you are the first man friend  I trust

it’s just

a friend thing

on a wing

and a prayer…
