I often wonder
what you were doing before
you started reading this.

Taking a quick break from work perhaps, or maybe
getting caught up on emails and such just before bed.
Perhaps you’re peering over
your morning cup of coffee.

The reason I ask is because
I wonder where your mind is -
and what you might be expecting

Always a reason… Know it or not

always-a-reason

For so many years I’ve held a belief that
people come into our lives for a reason
- AND that sometimes we know what that reason is,

chuckle…
Do we ever really know ?
And just when we think we know the reason

I remember I had bought
candy bars for the other kids
in class the day they had the
school dance back in grade school.

Ever had that sort of gnawing thought
in the back of your mind that something
