With all the worldwide events in Japan, Egypt, Afghanistan and numerous other places, having my XM radio receiver stolen out of my car night before last definitely falls into the category of "First-World Problem". It was still upsetting and left me angry and disappointed.

But then I made this, knowing that is it true. I am so very Lucky.

I thought about Ireland's "Forty Shades of Green" while I put it together, and used up a number of green and yellow and gold beads in my stash. I love a project like that.

The necklace is in the shop right now.

Today I will be making pizza for dinner, and Nigella Lawson's Guiness Cake for dessert (just 'cause). I'll pray for the people of the world who are going through rough times and disaster, and for friends who have lost loved ones at home and abroad, and I'll remember just how lucky I am, and thank God for my blessings.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We never really realize how lucky we are until there is a tragedy.

What a wonderful necklace! I love all the different hues of green. The cake sound delish!

The " Lucky" focal is a wonderful etching and you are right, sometimes it's hard to look past the everyday problems and annoyances and remember our blessings. Still sorry about your radio!
