How did I get so lucky?

This morning, I am feeling incredibly lucky.  Drew (my Match.com hubby) and I are at our home in Maine.  It’s on an island, and last night we had a fierce rain and wind storm.  Then in the middle of the night, it cleared and the nearly full moon shown through our bedroom window and right on our faces.  Did you know that sleeping in the light from the full moon can make you loony?  Maybe you thought I was anyway.

So here this morning, the air is fresh, clear and cold.  We’ve got a fire in the wood stove to warm us up, the sun is shining, and we are watching the birds gobble up the suet, peanut butter and bird seed sandwich we hung for them from the maple tree out front.

So yes, I am feeling lucky.  But I got lucky by DOING, not just by crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.  I built this house myself, literally, thirty years ago.  I carved the woods back, planted, painted, and pruned.  Now Drew does most of the heavy stuff and I get to try new recipes.  Last week we made grape jelly—I’ve made jam plenty of times, but never jelly.  It was a first. 

I’m with Drew because of what we did, both of us.  We were lucky to meet, but we made our own luck.  Luck does not just happen.  You make it.

That’s right. You need to do something about it. It won’t wait for you. But once you got it, never let it go.
