Last night, before we were fortunate enough to see “Parasite” — an incredible movie about the fortunes of families from very different classes — Michael and I got bubble-gum fortunes at a restaurant nearby.
While I wasn’t fortunate enough to get a comic and fortune that was cut properly, Michael was.
If I had been fortunate enough to get that fortune about being anxious to achieve something very important and succeeding, I would have greatly appreciated that view of such a fortunate future.
Earlier that morning, I was fortunate enough to capture the images of birds flying around and around our home, casting shadows on the blinds.
Are birds flying around and around your home considered fortunate? I was fortunate enough to find this online article about bird superstitions and myths.
Later in the day, I was fortunate enough to attend a beautiful memorial ceremony for my beloved colleague Deb Carmichael.
I believe all of us at the memorial service felt fortunate to have the opportunity to write down on those index cards our thoughts about our good fortune in knowing Deb, so we could share those with Deb’s family.
I felt fortunate when one of the speakers at the memorial service quoted something I often say:
The pain of the loss is directly proportional to the importance of the connection.
We were all fortunate to hear a song that Deb had personally chosen to be sung at her memorial service by a member of our shared professional organization and home: The Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy. While you won’t be fortunate enough to hear that rendition today, here is the song:
I feel fortunate that I can share my other photos from yesterday with you, here and now:
Please be grateful for every fortunate moment we get to share together.
