Debate: What's luck got to do with it?

Reading such comments got me thinking:

"I was lucky enough to breastfeed." - "Not all women are as lucky as me." - "I was lucky enough to breastfeed my son for a year" - "You're so lucky to still be breastfeeding" - "i was lucky to breastfeed for 9 months" - "I was very lucky with breastfeeding."

Do you consider yourself lucky to be able to BF - or to BF for as long as you did?

I think it's all in how you look at it.

Definitely like this one better! More space between the words I think :)

I hate that I'm getting old, though ... I used to only need glasses for distance, but now the term "distant" is relative. I don't like it when the computer screen is considered "distant"!!! LOL ;)

Oh yeah that's going to be a problem.

"We don't want age to be a hinderance to social networking if at all possible."

Absolutely not! You are so right there!

I know I can change the font size (my parents did this for their computer) but it seems like just putting on my glasses is probably sufficient at this point. It's weird when I have to alternate between near and distance - like singing from the hymnal at church, or reading a book while watching TV. I wear my glasses and make sure they're pushed all the way up, then look *under* my glasses at the hymnal/book. It's like reverse reading glasses ;)

I think there's always an element of luck; it's just a matter of degree.

I think there's a big difference between saying, "I was so lucky to be able to breastfeed" and "You were so lucky to be able to breastfeed."
