The odds can be against us or for us....

Odds are we'll live and not die,
odds are I'll eat a whole apple pie.
I love apple pie,
and I want to live and not die.
Odds are I'll stick to my motto,
chances are slim that I'll win the lotto.

When it comes to odds,
quite few end up with broken hearts.
Love is a risk taking adventure,
it starts out being a romantic venture.
But over the years passing,
lovers will suffer much bashing.
Odds are slim in making love a success,
the outcome certainly is hard to guess.

What are the odds?
sometimes we know,
other times we don't.
Either we'll make it,
or either we won't.

Odds for me are like holding a fork when its raining soup.
But I get it, one million bucks you say? she a widow?

So true One, I saw on the news the other day where a lady found ten dollars in a store where she worked, no one claimed the money so she decided to buy a lottery ticket with it! Guess what, she won one million dollars! How's that for a stroke of luck? Wonder what the odds were? A million dollars, wow! Enjoyed this write one!

Odds are in my favor always. Interesting look at it though. After all these years I'm still on the winning side because I've learned and grown and I'm not afraid to keep going. Lady J

The odds are usually stacked against us, but if we strive to make the right choices, perhaps we increase our odds? Made me think Grady.

Odds are we shall live till we die.
Don't count on the odds. Pick up the loose ends and live life to the fullest. Tomorrow will come when it does. Live and love for today.
God Bless,
