A Lucky Day is a Double-Edged Sword

When someone says they were lucky, they usually mean they had good luck. Luck, however, can be either good or bad. I had a day full of both kinds of luck, beginning as soon as I woke up. Something bad would happen and then be corrected by a stroke of luck, or the other way around. For example, today, I locked myself out of the house. I forgot my keys, so I used the spare key from our secret hiding place. Since it is rarely used, it rusted a bit and got stuck in the lock as I turned it. It would not come out for anything. I wondered if I was going to have to call a locksmith. On an outside chance, I went to the back and checked the back door hoping this was one of the times my son forgot to lock it. I get mad at him when he does this on occasion. Today I was praying that he did. What luck! He did leave it unlocked! I guess I can say I had a lucky day. Did you have a lucky thing happen lately?

One time I was outside and couldn't remember whether I turned off the switch for the iron or not, and it was already a few hours after I left. When I got home it turned out that I did. I call that a lucky day.

Like you I often have luck of all kind. It is great to be able to look at it in that manner, though. I also have been lucky in my thoughts today.

Now that is a lucky day and unlucky day in one. Interesting post. I got lost while driving yesterday because construction had closed a bridge I was going to use so I drove through the boonies to where I wanted to go hoping I had taken the right road and it was perfect. I was relieved I didn't have to stop and ask for help to get to where I was going. I guess I had bad luck and good luck too.

Lucky. You could have ended up in an unsafe part of town.

A meteor has not fallen on my head. Other than that, pretty neutral. Did get some trees made. But that was skill!
