On Saturday as Glendia and I entered the raffle room, one of the organizers overheard us discussing how many tickets we were planning to buy. “Well, are you feeling lucky today?” she asked. We quickly explained that we generally are pretty lucky. It’s true, almost always one of us (sometimes both of us) walks out with a prize. We purchased our tickets, distributed them among the items, and were soon on our way to visit the crafters.
I wasn’t surprised when my phone rang later - someone informing me that I had won a raffle item. When we went to pick it up, the woman we had spoken to before commented, “Wow! You really are lucky!” I’m sure she was doubly surprised when I returned a little later to claim my second item. Yes, I won twice in one day! But I don’t hold the record – once Glendia won three times!
Although I don’t really consider myself lucky, I’m thinking now that I probably am, and not just at craft shows. I am lucky to have a wonderfully supportive and loving husband, great kids, caring friends, a satisfying career, and good health. Life is good!
