Dear kisskissme, One of my favs is “everything happens for a reason” This has become something I have lived by for many years. My recent ordeal was travelling behind an elderly gentleman on the highway. He held me and a host of people up. It seemed it took forever to get to where we were all going. I said to myself “everything for a reason” sure enough we came upon a accident at a 4 way light. All 4 vehicles were badly damaged. It seemed they all pushed the light…we had missed it by only minutes. So thank you to the old man who held us up…it would have been us. Everything for a reason. Sue…good luck
