Sunday Poser # 124

Sadje is our host for the Sunday Poser questions. This week:

Do you believe in luck?

Years ago, it was traditional to give the Bride and Groom a ‘lucky horse shoe’ and/or a Black cat token on their wedding day. I was given neither so maybe that was why I was divorced before my 4th wedding anniversary.

Luck can mean different things to different people. If you were lucky at cards, it was said you were unlucky in love. That came about for me with ex-partner as I always seemed to do well playing for pennies at cards, but my choice of partner was not so good in the end.
People have lucky numbers, lucky colours, lucky pieces of jewellery, lucky items of clothing. It all comes down to confidence in yourself in what you do and who you meet.

So, thirty four years ago was it luck I saw the ad in the paper that Hubby had placed?
Was it luck he decided to take a chance and reply? Luck that I again responded, and luck that we met shortly afterwards? Luck that we are where we are now and still together?

Both of us are convinced we were meant to meet and become a couple. It just took a while for Fate to line things up in all the right places at the right time.
Why do I say this?
Because Hubby used to go to the same places I did, but on different nights.
When he was in the Falklands, the guy in front of him pulled my letter out of the box for correspondence from home.

Had we met all those years ago, we may well not have liked each other because we had different values and expectations having not gone through the hard knocks life threw at us to appreciate what we have now.
I’m not bothered if it was luck, fate, or the Easter Bunny, all I know is that we’ve found each other, and that is what matters.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    My grandfather had a horseshoe above the door to his basement workshop/man cave! It was tacked up so securely that when my grandmother put her house on the market and we wanted to take the horseshoe down it wouldn’t budge. It had to stay with the house… 😦

    • Ha! My uncle had a neighbour who was a talented keyboard player. He had an extension build over his garage to house a huge Hammond organ. The problem was, they couldn’t get it out of the room so it had to be sold with the house!

    You both were fated to meet and what you both made of it afterwards is your effort.

    Hubby had an affair with my aunt years before I met him 🀣

    I’ve never really been lucky in love…. or the Lottery. But then again I think love is a lottery!

  7. Hammad Rais says:

    For some, horseshoe may work but I’m not such. Whatever we had gone through, whatever is happening to us right now and whatever might happen to us, all of this is just bound to happen. We may not know it all, which is for our own betterment.

    so happy you both met when you did! ❀
