Actually, I’m not fond of this number at all.
At The Last Supper, there were 13 people around the table… the 13th supposedly being Judas who betrayed Christ.
On Friday the 13th, in October 1307, Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of the Knights Templar, then tortured and murdered them (they protected Christian pilgrims during the Crusades).
In a tarot card deck, XIII is the card of Death.
The Apollo 13 lunar mission was a “successful failure” (successful because no one died).
That isn’t really the point of my post.
My point then?? Glad you asked!!
My baby boy just turned 13!! I am now officially the mother of a teenager (may the Good Lord have mercy on my soul)!
Happy Birthday AJ!!
I’m still not fond of the number 13… but I think I can live with it for a year.
