Curse or blessing? Which do you choose? Which do I choose? The other day, someone commented to me that they've had enough perceived bad luck lately, and that it almost seemed like there was a curse. When are things going to go right? It got me thinking. Recently, as often happens in life, there have been a few frustrating events. My daughter didn't get a part in the play that she thought she would, I broke my hand, and we didn't get an account I thought we were going to get.
