How Do You Define Luck?

Dear Jodi,

On this St. Patrick’s Day, does feeling lucky increase our level of happiness?  Is our luck defined by experiencing more good fortunes in life than misfortunes?  And why are some of us more luckier than others?

This got me thinking about you.   Did luck have any influence on your health, treatments, surgeries or your happiness and joy in life?   We never thought about luck or chance.  Instead, we chose to appreciate the many fortunes in our ordinary lives. 

Fortunes of  love, compassion, kindness, gratitude, happiness, joy and a deep appreciation for family and friends – all of which continue to increase my happiness each day. 

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”  — Seneca

Maybe there is some truth in that quote, but for now I’m luckiest having you and Jamie as my children.

Love,

Mom
