The definition of LUCK is the force that seems to operate for good or ill in a person's life, as in shaping circumstances, events, or opportunities. But does luck exist and if so does it play a role in love?
The answer, at least in my opinion, is yes and no. Sometimes there is simply no other way to explain why something happens other than to say luck was involved. For example 15 years ago this July I met my husband in a summer Spanish class. I had recently gotten out of a bad relationship and was not looking for a boyfriend. I had taken the summer class because I was trying to graduate early and I needed to complete my foreign language requirement. My husband, an engineering major, didn't need to take a language. He was just looking for an easy class to obtain the credits he needed. Chances are if we had not met in that summer class we never would have met. As an engineering major he spent most of his time on the other side of campus and we lived in separate dorms. Yet we met and have been together ever since. Was it luck? I like to think it was. But it is not luck that has kept us together. Rather it has been understanding, shared values, compassion, and work
Luck also appears in our favorite romance novels. How many times do our beloved characters met because they are in the right place at the right time? Or maybe in the wrong place at the right time. Either way our favorite romance characters often find themselves lucky in love when the story ends and they find their happily ever after. Or at least they always do in my favorite reads and in my series The Sherbrookes of Newport.
