Happy Tuesday, ladybugs,
Joining my friend Laura at The Horton Family for the second installment of her new series Write with Me: 3 Things. Laura explains the series as an opportunity to spark the creative juices of anyone struggling in the area of writing. She said that back in December, she found myself “wanting” to write, but simply didn’t have any content or ideas to write about. Enter the 3 Things series. Laura thought having 3 questions each month would at least give her something to think and write about. I really enjoyed participating in the inaugural 3 Things post, here. As with Grammy Dee’s short story prompts, Laura’s new series is providing me with opportunities to write.
In the graphic below, you can read the 3 things Laura has asked us to consider this month.
- Do you believe in luck? Why or why not? Toughie tough tough question! I think so, yes, I do believe in luck. My brother Kevin is lucky. He won a brand new Ford Mustang. PC is semi-lucky…he married me! But almost everyone who knows me would tell you if not for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. I have had one crazy ride in my adult life and while some of the craziness might come from poor decisions on my part (like marrying more than once the wrong kind of guys), there are things that add up to bad luck. Just can’t figure out how else to explain it. One example, years ago, the girls’ father and I were shipping a car to the U.S. from Panama. A car that barely ran. It had to be pushed into the lot at the pier where it remained until the car was loaded onto a ship that would deliver it to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We had to leave one set of keys with the car. Walking across the pier where we left the car, my ex-husband dropped our second set of keys and they fell through the tiniest crack in the pier and straight into the Pacific Ocean. His key chain and the keys on it had to line up just perfectly to pass straight through the crack. Crazy.
Yesterday or Today
- What was your favorite thing about yesterday or today? Can I answer both? Yesterday, it was having my girls here with me, taking Lucia to the park before they left for their trip home. Today, scrapbooking and Skyping (Skryping) with my sister Valerie. Managed to get 2 pages completed. Well, all but gluing down the photos. And we might just do it again tomorrow.
Last Picture Show
- Show us the last picture you took and a short description of it. PC swinging Cia at the park yesterday. Baby girl loves to swing. She even fell asleep in the swing on Saturday. I love swinging, too. Do you?
I am a bit delinquent getting this published. Had it ready to go and then somehow, in one swift movement, I deleted all but the first paragraph above. Went back over my revision history trying to retrieve what I had written and the revisions were inaccessible (which I just realized is in inaccessible and not unaccessable). Just another example of my luck.
Do you believe in luck? Are you lucky? Do you win things? Has unexpected good fortune been bestowed upon you? I would love to know. In so many ways, I am very blessed. But lucky…not so much.
Please be sure to stop by Laura’s to see how she answered these questions. I have a feeling she’s lucky. Let’s go find out.
Hugs and kisses,
