Quote of the Day: Wisdom from a Fortune Cookie & 5 Lucky Numbers

"Treasure what you have." -- Fortune Cookie Wisdom

That's the word from one side of a fortune cookie slip of paper, which is sitting next to my keyboard: Treasure what you have. On the other side, there is a bit of related advice: "Be Full," with a translation in either Chinese or Korean and a phonetic key. (bao)

The Message: Enough already! Sometimes in the drive for fame and fortune, I want more, more, more. And in that push for wealth and acclaim, I forget that I have already been blessed (Thank G-d) with so much: good health, children, a great family (immediate and extended), a comfortable home and food. Don't be greedy and enjoy what you have. That's what the fortune cookie says to me.

In addition to that bit of wisdom, the fortune offered five lucky numbers: 4, 7, 11, 12, 35, 38.

Lottery numbers? Hmmmm. Message: Count your blessings, dream of jackpots and take calculated risks.
