How’d I Get So Lucky?

How’d I Get So Lucky?
“Go Directly To Those You Cherish And Tell Them How Incredibly Lucky You Feel To Have Them In Your Life!”

“After he hired me he asked, “how’d I get so lucky?”  My friend blushed.

“Of course he’s lucky! Not everyone get’s to work with the woman who can make CSS and HTML sing.” I teased

I can’t remember the last time someone mentioned me and luck in the same sentence.”

Are you kidding?” I asked

What, when was the last time someone told you that they were lucky you showed up?”

Well, that’s me; not you!” I teased

I’m serious; when?”

“Almost forever ago.” I admitted

“See.” She gloated.

No, that’s not what I was thinking. I was thinking how could all of us, your friends  NOT be asking, “How’d I get so lucky?”

Right!

No seriously, I’m sorry. I felt lucky the day I met you and have enjoyed my luck and our friendship ever since and I’m sick that I’ve never told you that.

Please, don’t cry; people will stare.” She pleaded.

I don’t want to take you or anyone else in my life  for granted but I keep doing it. Acting like everything will always be the same and that I’ll have plenty of time to show how much I care, adequate time to adore and love on everyone. And then bang someone moves, a friendship splinters, someone dies and I was wrong, wrong, wrong. I’ve got to stop putting off what I can say and do today.

Smiling she agreed, “Ditto.”

Heh?” I asked.

Yeah?”

“How’d I get so lucky?”

 

Inspirational Companies

My vote for inspirational company of the day is http://www.mytapwaterbottle.com/ A little about this small business- in their own words "water quality It’s simply impossible to get chemical-free water from a plastic bottle. Even small amounts of bacteria at bottling can multiply to a much larger problem by the time the product gets to you. It’s unrealistic to think that water bottled in plastic containers, produced at a bottling factory, transported and stored at high temperatures for months at a time, can be purer than what a basic home water filtration system can deliver. And at least two out of every five bottles of water sold around the world are simply filtered tap water. Tap water is constantly moving, staying fresh and never stagnating. It is also filtered, disinfected, and is tested many times a day. In contrast, no filtration or disinfection requirements - and virtually no international quality standards - exist for bottled water. A water filtration system and the refillable tap waterTM bottle is a simple, clean solution. Drink Local. Drink Tap Water Since I am now drinking a gallon of water a day as part of a coming back to health regime- and a detox for a seemingly tired immune system. Tap water has my attention. Have we been sold a bill of plastic goods? Time to look into filters and clean up my act! Thanks for inspiring me and here's a look at her products purchase 250ml V1 (9oz): $10 - Qty: [all prices are listed in canadian dollars] They say the best things in life are free. Really? Water is right at the top of that list and these days a bottle of water costs more per litre than gasoline. That’s about as far from free as it gets. Tap water on the other hand is totally free. Just turn on any old tap and you’ll get water that, in most cases, is better regulated and certainly cheaper than water that comes in a plastic bottle. So maybe the best things in life are free. And refillable ;) 500ml V2 (17oz): $12 - Qty: [all prices are listed in canadian dollars] Life is full of choices: big and small. Sometimes a small choice like choosing to buy bottled water over drinking tap water, casts a big shadow. Making this small choice means you’re supporting an industry that ships billions of tiny bottles of water overseas, often taking it from people who lack access to clean drinking water and selling it to people with so much of it they flush it away. Hmmm. Small choice? 1 litre V1 (32oz): $18 - Qty: [all prices are listed in canadian dollars] In the good old days, mineral water and spring water didn’t come in the "convenient" plastic bottles they do today. Bottles which, after a single use, find their way to our oceans breaking down into millions of pieces. These pieces are gobbled up by marine animals which are then eaten by other animals and so on until eventually those bottles end up in the food on our plates. So next time you pass up on tap water for that "healthier" option, do us all a favour, eat the bottle too. Now go to the site and check out this inspiring company for yourself tapwaterbottle

Every day I get up expecting a miracle or ten thousand. Mostly I expect God to take the questions of life and turn them into soulful inspiration to encourage you and I on this journey. That's why I'm here. I believe in the miracles that faith, love and hope make possible.
