Lucky is a State of Mind

Have I mentioned my hellish week? Yeah, I thought so. (If you really want, you can read all about it here.) It's been a doozy. But at the end of it, you know how I feel...? Lucky.

Lucky that the week is over (haha)... But in a real way, just plain lucky! Lucky to have such a supportive husband who is willing and able to work through life's challenges with me (and, by the way, is also an excellent gift-giver...) Lucky to have kids who are happy and healthy (Nora seems to be on the upswing after a bad cough and a rough week...) Lucky to have received some good news (following some hard news) from a dear friend... Lucky to have people in my life who are willing to call me out on difficult things (this was a big part of last week too...) and in the process help me grow as a person... just plain lucky!

With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I've been thinking a lot about luck. I've been thinking about how lucky I am. I've been thinking that we are all lucky in ways we don't even realize.

I've been thinking that, more than anything, lucky is a state of mind. What about you? What do you think about luck?

...A little something to ponder....  :)

Looking for another something to ponder? Check out my Love Wish!


Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling!
I hope you feel right at home :)


  1. We are lucky to have a comfortable place to live. We are lucky to have enough food to eat. We are lucky to have friends and family that support us and care about us. We are lucky to live in a country where we have so many freedoms. So many of these things we take for granted But we need to remember that we are lucky...and blessed.

  2. Love it! Just pinned it and visited your blog through the Pintastic hop!

  3. So true... Happiness is also a state of mind and I have to remind myself of that often. I love your picture. I host a Tasteful Tuesday link party (still open until Friday) and would love for you to come over and link up!

  8. Yay! You are really lucky and I'm sorry to hear about the bad week...heading over to read about it!

  9. I love the Lucky mugs, and the idea of using St Patty's Day to celebrate/remember the numerous ways we are lucky. Thanks for the great ideas! Your page is wonderful -- I wish I had more time to spend on it! :/
