With a Little Luck

by mollykl

This week we got word that son j’s after-school and summer program is in danger of being shut down. Bean counters…blah…blah..blah…and they chose the district with no current representation to shut down (hm…no coincidence there at all). So now, in addition to the myriad of other things to worry about (upcoming truckload, husband J traveling for work, dealing with medicare…again) we also have to worry about what to do about the summer, when J and I both have to work.

It’s all going to be alright, because luck is on our side. And when I say luck, what I really mean is a lot of hard work and preparation. Husband J is drafting letters to the city council and the mayor and he’s going to attend the council meeting. I’m going to start researching summer programs and getting recommendations from friends.

Because that’s what luck is – you prepare and you look for the good in a situation. It’s not some magic fairy dust that some people get doused with. Make your own luck. Go on, get started.
