|Jenny, Mom, Debbie, front row: Angie, Pau Chu, Rina, Charles and Jason 1970|
I was a lucky little girl to be number nine in a series of ten siblings. Jenny was sister number one. Debbie was number two, Angie was number five, Pau Chu, she is my nightingale, was sister number six, Charles was number eight and Jason with his soft, tame spirit was number ten.
Most of us have some kind of favorite number for many reasons. The question is whether these numbers truly bring luck or are they just a coincidence? My lucky number 9 tells me in order to truly understand life I must be of greater service to society. That I have a greater social role to play that will require a blend of the practical and humanitarian efforts and directing those efforts toward some greater good. The more I can be of service to humanity, the greater will be my personal reward on all levels -- from the material to the spiritual.
