I found this four leaf clover the other day. This is very rare as I never find four leaf clovers. I put it down on this piece of fabric that the hubby put on my worktable. I liked the way the stripes framed the little four leaf clover and made it stand out against the pink. Another poster was born!
Okay, luck, come get me, I'm waiting for you! *Sits and waits clutching four leaf clover in sweaty hand*
Maybe that's the wrong approach.
Maybe I do have to go out and make my own luck as Thomas Jefferson's quote states. He says that hard work and preparation go much further than sitting around waiting for luck to fall from the sky.
I have mixed feelings about that. Sure, hard work and preparation are important, but sometimes amazing things do happen and it's good to be open to them.
I've always envied people who seem lucky. Everything goes their way and their lives look so perfect. If only I could be so lucky. What do you think? Is it just a case of the person working hard, being prepared and grabbing an opportunity when it presents itself? Or is it really some magical force? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
