A Very Lucky Winter…

       This past week, we’ve had a huge Nor’easter; While the rest of the country got pounded by either 30 or even 40 inches of snow, the rest of us here in Delaware hardly got anything at all, except a downpour of rain. Looking back at that, I began to realize just how very lucky I am to have somehow dodged the bullet of this massive snowstorm, while at the same time feel very bad for the rest of the people who now have to dig out from this mess of a winter, and then start all over.

       I somehow guess that there are people out there who are luckier than others; But we do not ever wait for any kind of luck to happen…We just expect and take whatever kind of luck we can get. And yes, there are people who have used or are still using the time-honored lucky charms: Horseshoe, rabbit’s foot, four-leaf clover, etc. 

       Of all the aforementioned lucky charms out there, I think that the four-leaf clover just might be the most popular of all, because according to tradition, they bring good luck, and not only that, each leaf represents a certain belief-The first for faith, the second for hope, the third for love, and the fourth for luck; I would rather take the third leaf, the leaf of love, because it represents something that we very much lack nowadays: Love; Love for our families, love for our fellow citizens, love for those who are less fortunate, and of course, love for each and every one of each other, no matter what our race, creed, sex, or religion.

       Now, that would surely be the kind of luck that everyone of us wants to have.
