I have written topics on Loss, on Moments and today Luck. When someone you love, is taken from you whether that is through illness; suicide; murder or natural death; you lose alot more then the person. You lose faith; hope; trust; the feeling that you will never have another good day as long as you live. You think about that person all day long and think "I am going to go crazy if I don't stop thinking about this for just a moment" and then a day comes when for 5 minutes you don't think about them and you beat yourself up for being selfish and not thinking of them. And you certainly don't feel like you are lucky. No good luck is shining down on you right? Well this afternoon I found out that I was wrong about that. Like finding a moment in a day where things are good or right and taking that feeling and running with it, well can't we do the same with luck? I had my sister come up last night, we had a great sister night and when she left to go home this after noon, I sat in my chair thinking, "I am so damn lucky". Then I popped online and got a couple of hugs from people who told me how lucky I was to have her in my life. LUCKY! I am lucky, Lets count the ways together, I will start. 1) My son Matthew, who works so hard and is such a good man, he brings a laugh to me with his sense of humor, I love it. 2) My sister Katherine, my best friend in the world. 3) My dog, Isabella who would not leave my side for anything in the world. 4)My friend's, who stand by me when I need them to and stay away when I need that too. 5) My new house. 6) My friends at Daily Strength. 7) The fact that my pain level is low today. SHOULD I GO ON? That is only a few things that make me a very lucky person today. What about you? Like finding those few moments that are good and saying "ok, I don't have good days but I have good moments", I am going to string my good luck together and turn it into something. I am not playing the Lotto, I'm playing the game of my life. Tell me about your luck.
