Have you ever had any good luck? There are some who would say “if it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all”. I think that was from a skit in the old HEE HAW show on But what has been your experience with luck? Whatever it was, and whenever it was, good or bad, it made you….you!
When luck comes to mind, several memories draw nigh with that thought. Remember the line in the Dirty Harry movies. Good old Clint Eastwood standing there with a huge 44 caliber pistol asking the punk “Are you feeling lucky”? Or maybe it’s Frank Sinatra singing “Luck Be a Lady Tonight”?
If it were your coach or teacher, they would tell you “luck is when opportunity meets preparation”. Or maybe it was your boss at work, and they told you “I’m a great believer in luck. The harder I work the more luck I seem to have”.
Like most folks, I’ve had my share of good and bad luck. Last year a bad luck experience was I had to go to the emergency room with a terrible infection. Was in the hospital for 10 days and then daily follow up visits for 3 weeks! Good news? They saved my life! Lucky? I think so!
