Make Your Own Luck (using a crochet hook)

lucky amigurumi bunny with lucky black catThe concept of Luck is a fascinating one and varies from culture to culture.  Black cats and rabbits are considered lucky, the New Zealand Māori Ticki’s are definitely Lucky and so is a four-leaf clover.  Cards and card playing have been around for ever and being “Lucky with cards” is something all gamblers want.
I consider myself very lucky to had had such great friends in my life. What do you consider lucky?

  1. Thanks. I think if we accept the cards we get dealt with and have a go at playing with them, good things happen and a bad hand can turn out quite well if we keep going. 🙂


  2. I liked the analogy you used with the cards there. So true. : )

    As for where I see the most luck in my life? I am not exactly sure if this counts, but getting blessed with being David and Joshua’s mom and being able to regain enough health and strength to be able to truly enjoy them and all their little antics. Even the ones that can drive me crazy at times. haha 🙂


  3. You are the best, wisest and cleverest friend a person could have (did I mention generous) I bet your house is filled to overflowing with items such as that.


  4. and being a good friend gets you good friends ( I got given a cushion with that on it)

  5. Yes you are right. I look around me and see how much my relationships have added happiness to my life. I am a bit of a minimalist but also like decorating for special occasions. I love your (two for) idea and it has inspired me to have a “decoration box” rather than a Christmas box. Life is to short to only decorate at Christmas! My Australian upbringing frowned upon ‘showy” displays and that is fine but I have decided I personally like displays, as “showy” as possible!!! I love they way we encourage and inspire each other. Happy Princesses Dad’s day. 🙂


  6. It’s amazing how much the Internet can enrich our lives by the relationships they make possible – I met two of my best friends on the Internet a few months after I had my daughter (like Lara, that first year was difficult, as none of my friends were my age [the youngest had kids in elementary school already] and making friends was just too hard). And these two friends (who I’ve barely known for three years) are like old, old friends to me…lucky me, I got to meet them, even though we live on opposite sides of the country AND in different countries! 😉 Relationships, as tricky as they can be, are probably the most rewarding “gift” of all.


  7. Thank you Lara, your post moved me a way that doesn’t have words.Let me just say for the past 12 years I have been waking up my luck. I believe I will keep this in my heart for a very long time.
    My boy is a delight to wake up. Before I started waking him, he used to wake me. “Wake up Mummy”. I didn’t realize it but my luck was waking me up every morning. I am glad I always got up without complaining ( on the outside) : )


  8. That’s actually one of the reasons I started blogging. Being a mom 24/7 can be isolating. I’ve loved connecting with people and sharing stories and ideas, finding “friends” of a different sort. It’s been uplifting for my soul. Great post!


  9. I agree Linne, I had no idea when I started blogging (which was about promoting my classes), that it would be so much fun and that I would meet so many lovely people.


  10. Yes, new friends of kindred spirit are wonderful! Especially since I’ve lived far from my long-time friends for years now. The inspiration, tutorials, family news; all of it is great and enriches my life.

  11. I know what you mean about finding new friends through blogging. It’s been such a wonderful way to connect to people in far away places. That’s really lucky! Lovely post!
