I’ve been pretty lucky my whole life – not lucky like I win raffle prizes, but lucky in a bigger way. Lucky that I was born in the United States, lucky that I was born into my family, lucky that I’ve always been fairly bright / athletic / healthy / cute / etc. Things that I bet most people take for granted.
Sometimes it feels like my luck has run out a little bit. I don’t want to be Debbie Downer, as I am still very lucky in many aspects. But perhaps it is not a luck issue – it is more of a fairness issue. Life hasn’t been all that fair to Boomboom and I recently. I am a crier in general, but have shed more tears in the past few months than I have in the past two / three years combined. Not fun. <sigh>
