imageAs I was driving today, I noticed that my car was nearing a particular number… So when it neared “77777,” I exited the freeway so I could take this picture at 11:17 a.m. (Please excuse the dust! 😜)

I am grateful for my car!

20140412-231748.jpgYesterday afternoon, as I was about to leave to pick up the food I ordered for the Bradley vs. Pacquiao Potluck party I was going to, my car battery died. I am truly grateful and lucky that it happened at home.

During the party, someone suggested betting on the fight. It was just for $5, but I had spent all my cash on the food. They insisted I play, so I put in $3 ($1 was in quarters, LOL), and I said, “I guess I’ll owe the winner $2.”

We pulled numbers for the round, and I had the 12th round. I guess I was doubly lucky! I won $58.

Today, I am buying a new battery for my car, but I have family helping me to drive to get it and to replace it too! I am grateful to be thrice lucky!

Today was lucky. I decided to look up lottery results for my pile of tickets and I won forty-three dollars!  That’s $43 more than I had before.  How cool!

It was also lucky that “Super Soul Sunday’s” Soul To Soul 2 episode was still available for me to watch today on On Demand.  I have written in many posts how much I love “Super Soul Sunday.” For me, it’s uplifting, inspiring, and is telling that it matters not the gender, race, religion, etc… we are all connected.

In Soul To Soul 2, Oprah recaps some of today’s top thinkers, teachers, and spiritual leaders’ answers to life’s big questions such as: What is the difference between spirituality and religion? What is the soul? What happens when we die?  What does the world need?

For the last question, I think the world needs more kindness.  I believe that an act of kindness, however small, can open a heart, which leads to more acts of kindness, and more opening of hearts.

Do you remember this little envelope from The Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar, Pay It Forward Day?  There’s still money in it. There are others keeping “Pay It Forward” alive. It is very heartwarming to know and actually see this happening.

What do you think the world needs?
