There is an old Irish “saying”, that if a bird’s droppings fall on you, or anything you own—that is good luck!
My husband and I laugh when we remind each other of this saying, and my husband says, “Only the Irish, would look at bird droppings as a sign of good luck!” I think this saying reveals an amazing sense of humor, and a cheerful spirit—what a way to take something negative and turn it into something positive.
When coming back from my walk today, I took a picture of the “good luck” that had fallen on our property! Wow!! Would you look at all that, “good luck”!!
I hope this has given you a laugh.
Some of the best moments in my life, have been with people who know how to laugh. There is just something about laughing and sharing laughter that draws people together and binds them together.
One of the things I love best about my husband, is his sense of humor. He tickles my funny bone. I can be so mad at him, and he’ll say something so accurate and funny and witty, and I’ll be laughing, and the anger will dissipate. He also thinks I’m hysterical, and I love that!
I have heard that comedians have the longest lasting marriages, as compared to others in the entertainment business. I believe this. I think having a healthy sense of humor can stop us from taking ourselves too seriously and can help keep life in perspective. Laughter is often the medicine needed for what ails me.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
In closing, I pray that you will be blessed with the gift of laughter which comes from a cheerful heart.
And remember, if bird droppings fall on you, it’s good luck!! LOL

Thank you!! 🙂
Laughter is one of God’s greatest gifts to us. Seeing humor in a life that so often is filled with darkness is the Lord’s gracious goodness to help us see hope in Him. I love the whole idea of bird poop reflecting luck. I’ve actually been hit twice by bird poop, both times full-on splat. Life is that funny.
