I want to sincerely thank you for your comments today in response to my question: ‘what makes you feel lucky?’…….i have just gone through and read every response, and I am feeling lifted, strengthened and reminded…I love the positivity and gratitude that I could feel from each and every comment. It was just seriously exactly what I needed! Thank you.. for being heartfelt, and candid. It was inspiring for me. really.
I have been sitting here watching American Idol, and Cory picked 5 numbers between 1-388 and these are the winners:

I don't know what makes me lucky. I wish I did because maybe I would finally get chosen to go to Creative Escape. Maybe next year….right? I have told myself that for three years now. Anywho… I would certainly consider myself lucky if I won this drawing.

Today I had the best LUCK! After three years of searching I finally found an area rug for my living room 🙂 So trivial I know, but I don't think it is a coincidence that it happened on St. Patrick's day AND I'm Irish, lol.

I'm lucky because my husband and kids are all healthy, I'm losing weight, and my scrap stash is great (if I could only get my hands on the new stuff!!)

I don't believe in Luck either, but being lucky is truly being blessed. I had a rough 6 months with my health and now I am well and getting healthy. God has blessed me and I am "lucky" to be alive and well, with a fantastic husband, three teen boys who are growing and maturing. We have each other and plenty in life. That's lucky.

I'm lucky for my scar! I know weird, but last year I had a 95% chance of having cancer(let me tell you, that was the scariest thing to happen to me). I ended up being one of those 5% that was given a sec.chance. Up until that time, I really took life for granted. Now everday when I look at my scar,it is a reminder of
HOW LUCKY I AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have to say my favorite thing about you is not just your scrap products, but the simple fact that you still love scrapbooking with a passion of a person first starting out with it! LOVE THAT!

    I am so glad I can post and tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I love all the pics you take. I click on them to enlarge them and pore over them. You take such good ones.
    My husband and I are much much older than you, but the only thing I have to compare your move to China is that a couple of years ago our youngest daughter, her husband and little boy were stationed in Germany, and they invited us to stay with them for 4 months. For us, it was “scary”, but ultimately we had a wonderful time. Good luck on returning to AZ
