I haven’t written anything for a while and this came to me as I was “pondering” my life’s situations and I thought I would share a bit of my mindset with you this morning. I hope that you will take something away from it and that you will perhaps reflect somewhat on those around you who make or have made a difference in your life and how they’ve made it worth the living.
Please enjoy the poem and your reflections,
What Is Luck?
Why do most of us consider luck
as having to do with money?
When everyday there is something that
makes our lives more sunny!
People that we meet and know
are so much more the part
of the fortune that we gain
and hold within our heart.
You see, with gold and silver coins and bars
there is no warmth to hold
but a touch from someone dear
can drive away the cold.
Yes, money can make your living easy
but your life can still be poor
if there are none who love you then
what are you living for?
Material things are not flesh and blood
and have not greater worth
than those of whom we meet and know
in our time upon this earth.
So, my friends I say to you
let not fortune pass you by
and remember well, this little poem
and luck won’t leave you high and dry!
