“I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it,”
Mackenzie and her class were reading a book about Thomas Jefferson. They were all reading aloud and Mackenzie just so happened to read that specific part. Maybe I’m lucky she thought. She thought of the possible things that could happen from luck. Mackenzie can’t think of anything. Maybe luck could be as simple as being naturally good at a sport, or just all of sudden becoming smart. Mackenzie didn’t really know if she was lucky or anything had happened to her because of luck. Well I mean I am fortunate to have a stable family and a roof over my head. She thought, but she didn’t know if that was luck or something else. Mackenzie didn’t really focus on things other than her school work but now she was determined to find out one thing she was lucky to have that nobody else did. Jefferson did say that the more he worked hard the more luck he had,so maybe I have to wait. She thought. But then something else popped into Mackenzies mind, the lottery! She knew when she got home she was going to ask her parents to get 5 mega million tickets and 5 powerball. I work hard, so maybe winning the lottery is a bonus for my family's hard work.
Later that day when Mackenzie got home she gave her parents money to get the tickets, they went out to get the tickets while Mackenzie stayed home and did some research on the odds in winning the lottery. 300,000,000 to 1! That is crazy. I don’t NEED to win the lottery, I am thankful for what I have.
