Happy St.Patrick's Day to all the Irish and non-Irish who wish they were Irish! Are you feeling lucky today? I'm not sure about luck. I'm not sure how it works, who gets it, why some of us just don't seem to possess it. My Father-in-law used to say that the harder he worked, the luckier he got. Some days I feel like a work my tail off but the results always don't equal out. Then there are the times when I think, hey, I just can't believe my luck. This just wasn't one of those weeks. And it doesn't even have to do with the HGTV dream home I obviously didn't win! Do you believe in luck? Or fate? Or the line up of the stars? Or is everyday a crap shoot and we get what we get? What about God in all of this? I'm a strong believer in God and his love for us..even in the bad times. So why do I care about "luck"? So many questions for a beautiful day like the one we had today. That brings me to my next subject.. Us Northerners are weird. I should know because I've been one all my life. We have had the warmest March that I can remember. It's been a total opposite of last year and most every year before that. Yet, can we just sit back and enjoy it? NO! I'm looking over my shoulder and thinking "When does the snow come back?" "What does this weird weather mean?" So today I sat outside to get a little vitamin D. If you live within 50 miles of me the phenomenon you witnessed was just my white arms and legs giving off a glare. It's been since last year in...maybe September...when they last saw the light of day! I watched my neighbors clean up their yard. I watched them work. I watched the grass grow, the flowers bloom, the sun shine. I was feeling lucky I guess. Lucky that I wasn't working at the hospital..I'm on call this weekend. Lucky that I had nothing inspiring me to want to work in the yard yet. (Hey, it could snow next week..right?) Lucky that for one minute I could take a deep breath and think..for right now, I'm doing OK.
I do feel lucky to have sweet Grandkiddos like this little squirt! Cameron told his Daddy, (my son Jack), that he needed to go with him to YaYa's because he was sure YaYa was missing him. Well, besides being such a cutie, he's a mind reader..yep Cameron, YaYa did miss you and I'll always miss you until I see you again..hopefully very, very soon.
