    You’re lucky if .../You should be so lucky ...

    You’re lucky if your friends are generous.
    You’re lucky if you have got generous friends.
    You should be so lucky having generous friends.

    I'm trying to find a better way to write them. Please help me improve them.

    Can you explain what you're trying to say? Are you talking about a real or hypothetical situation?
