Do you think luck is just for the Irish? Here are the true stories of people who celebrate luck, coincident and joy of being in the right place at the exact right time.
Found Money At The Grocery shop
I was standing in the third line at the counter, and there is a lady at the cashier who was purchasing some basic items. Two cans of cat food, some eggs, white bread, a pack of milk and some different cookies. The cash was in her hand as the cashier returned her the total. She was 88 cents short.

The cat and the fire
I was deploying overseas so I decided to leave my cat with my mom. My mother had been feeling alone so I hoped she would change that and give my mother company.

She never did that before. When I smelled something weird, I jumped out of bed and found the kitchen was burning. My mom is alive because of her. I am not gonna get her back from my mom.—Helen Jones, Pflugerville, Texas
A ride in a cop car

I thought I have a lot of packages so it would be great to go home in a taxi. Within a short time, it appeared my ride had pulled over. I gave him my home address and off we went. The driver was really kind, he helped me carry my packages into my apartment. I asked him the fare in my broken English.”How much do I owe you”?.He replied “Not a dime, Miss. I am a police officer.—Fumiko Cascio, San Diego, California
