What I Saw On My Walk Today... Luck

 “We are all a great deal luckier that we realize,
we usually get what we want – or near enough.”
Roald Dahl

Because I’ve been doing a daily five-mile hike for the past few months and have lost a little weight as a result, I bent down and picked up this penny today.

It got me thinking about luck. Oh, 2020 was a sh*t-show, to be sure, but I contemplated how lucky I’ve been to be able to work from home and dedicate a little time each day to my daily walking stint. I know there are so, so many folks who’ve had a much worse time of it.

When I look back on the past year, I think I’ll consider it a lucky, lucky time. My family’s been safe and sane (well, safe anyway…) and I got to spend a lot of extra time with my 80-year-old parents. 

Somebody smarter than me once said that the best luck we can hope for is to have the ability and determination to overcome bad luck. 

I feel lucky today.

And a penny richer.
