Lady Luck

Daily Draw: Fairy Tarot ~ Wheel

What leaps to mind with the word lucky? Money?
Me too I'm sorry to say.
Upon thought, I was/am incredibly lucky in love.
It is sheer luck to be born, and I think I'm lucky to be born in the USA. I can only assume others feel the same way about their nation.
Unlucky not to have a strong culture. If plucked up and dropped in Japan or Botswana what would I cling to, white sugar and white bread? Pffpft.
Lucky to have a lively questing creative mind.
Unlucky to have a personality that doesn't draw friends, lucky to have the great ones that I do.
Lucky to have food shelter and health. One instant of bad luck can change all that.

I'm reminded by the oread nymph to respect and appreciate what I have and never take it for granted.

"What to do if you find yourself stuck in a crack in the ground underneath a giant boulder you can't move, with no hope of rescue. Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your current circumstances seems more likely, consider how lucky you are that it won't be troubling you much longer." ~ Douglas Adams 1952-2001
