Mother Teresa is a phenomenon in the God's creation.
The poem 'LIFE' is well-known as a great quote from her wonderful sayings.
This is an attempt to understand what is LIFE and its interpretation from each line in that poem.

Here, I examine how 'Life is luck' and how to 'make it'.

Life is luck, make it.

For Mother Teresa, life was luck so she made that luck as her own and utilized it fully until she achieved her goal. Yes, her goal of serving Jesus whom she saw in every suffering soul.

She always felt lucky to see Jesus in every form on Earth and she shared her unselfish love with everyone she met in her life.

Whenever she was in shortage of money for the expenses of running the shelters or homes, she was always lucky to get some awards and she happily spent all the money that came as awards. She spent every penny for the welfare of the destitute.

She made luck possible by her selfless service. The charities would pour into her prayerful hands when she needed finances for the homes she established and running at different places.

For the abandoned, the orphaned and the destitute, Mother Teresa was the luck personified. They never felt they were the abandoned, or the orphaned or the destitute. She made luck possible to them, through her selfless service and dedication of her life for the humanity.

I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
~Thomas Jefferson

The best luck of all is the luck you make for yourself.
~Douglas MacArthur
