An intriguing life journey filled with twists and turns, and many important lessons.When Barbara Kersey turned 90, she decided to give herself a special birthday present: a book written in her own words about her life story. Starting with her earliest memories: crossing the Atlantic on a ship to Scotland as a toddler and then returning to Canada and a new home in the booming industrial city of Windsor, Ontario in the mid-1920s, to more recent recollections of life as a thoroughly modern woman juggling marriage, children, career and community work - Barbara's tale is alternately inspirational, surprising, amusing and sad.Despite facing many challenges along her life journey, including nearly dying as a child due to a medical mishap, losing her father during the grim days of the Great Depression, and experiencing the painful realization that her mother was mentally ill and there was no help for her, "Was I Ever Lucky" is ultimately a book about how and why Barbara Kersey could focus on opportunities that came her way.Though she can no longer wear high heels as she strides purposefully into her 10th decade, Barbara knows she was, and is, very lucky.
