You Gotta Be Lucky

Posted on | February 13, 2010 | No Comments

My grandfather used to tell my father every day, “You gotta be lucky”.  My father used to wonder to himself, “Why is he telling me this every single day?” Well, because it’s true. My father is realizing it as he gets older, seeing his friends get older and some becoming sick.  I am realizing it now because of some recent family tragedies.  What does it mean?  You can do all the right things – eat right, no smoking, no drinking, exercise, but if you don’t have a little “mazal” you’re in trouble.

I wish for all my friends and family to be extra lucky in this new year…
