I’m feeling lucky this St. Patricks Day. It was a beautiful day to be up on the mountain with my family. Being Irish, I’ve grown up with hearing things like , “If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, then you’re lucky enough.” I feel like I am very lucky. I think a general sense of optimism accounts for some of this luck. I have a feeling of good fortune that comes from knowing I have friends and family that care about my well being. Choosing to focus on the positive more often than on the negative — and to consciously think of the things I’m thankful for — have played a part in my feeling lucky on more days than not. What about you? What is something (or who is someone) you feel grateful for today? What makes you feel lucky?
A Great Quote and Reminder
Feeling Lucky to be Blessed with this Little Girl
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
