Earlier this week, I wrote a post entitled “Archie.”
I ended that post with the sentence, “Lucky Me.”
It took a day or so, but it came to my attention that those two words could be interpreted at least two different ways.
The first was was that I was lucky I didn’t get attacked or robbed by Archie. That was surely not my intent and never entered my mind until someone commented to me that they thought that was what I was implying.
The second interpretation and the thought I hoped to convey was that I was lucky and thankful that I had the opportunity to help Archie. I was having a bad day and it ended on a positive note because I was able to assist a man I never met before.
My late friend, Bill Bates taught me, “in life, all the goodies go to the giver, not the receiver”
Now that I’ve cleared that up . . .
