Feeling lucky is a state of mind. I don’t need much to accomplish that. That’s easy for me to say. I have a better half who loves me, I’m in good health, I have a nice home to live in and money in my pocket.
I realize every day that there are lots of people who are less fortunate. I see them every day when I travel around in Amsterdam, or elsewhere, not to mention all the people who are all over the news, because they are in some kind of distress. To ease my conscious I donate to several good causes for people and animals.
I know my trouble free life could be over soon, so I try to enjoy this life while it last. So once in a while I have to do something crazy. Like buying something I absolutely can do without, but it makes me smile every time feel it, or I look at it real close.
One of my latest purchases falls into this category. It’s a classic case of should I buy or should I walk away. For months I’ve been looking at this statement clutch. Several times a week I took a peek at the internet page where it was exhibited. And every time it makes me smile. I was waiting for the little chance it was going on sale. And then it was out of stock and miraculously in stock again. I knew I had to make an instant decision. So I ordered it, keeping in mind I always could send it back (within four weeks that is, ha ha).
Once I held it in my hands I knew I would never send it back! Thanks to a large bonus I’ve received at the end of last year, I’m now the proud owner of this kick ass piece of art!
Thanks for your visit …
and note that ducks don’t follow the duck that croak the loudest, but the duck that is the first who flies away.
