Today I had what I call a lucky day (so far, it’s only 9:50am).
I was lucky because I had a flat battery in my car at the park – at least one hour walk with my 4 year old and it was just about to start raining.
“Lucky? Hey? What are you talking about?” you might be saying.
Yes, totally unbelievably lucky!
I had been having battery troubles for a few weeks, kinda just not quite starting as quickly as it normally had. So, I’d ignored it.
Anyway, it did give up the ghost sitting at the park where I’d forgotten to take my mobile phone. Oh well, LUCKY for me there was a nice man that loaned me his. It was even more LUCKY because our home phone is not working right now (no, not because of me forgetting to pay the bill!) and I had left it charged and in the kitchen so I could call my other son at home to get him to walk to school today.
Then I called roadside assist and LUCKY for me I had 3 days left on the policy AND I got a completely new battery for free.
A lot of other LUCKY things happened this morning too, my dog’s ball fell down the big water drain but it was “stuck” in some leaves and so we got it out…
Just as we got back in the car, it started to rain. HOW LUCKY!
I could have written my morning story a LOT differently and thought I was so UNLUCKY to have had all those things happen… but why think of myself as UNLUCKY when I could think of myself as LUCKY?
It’s a lot more fun thinking you are LUCKY.
Lots of love,
