For Everything there is a reason


Earlier this month I was traveling by train after a tough day at the office.  I noticed a folded paper tucked beside my seat which clearly wasn’t mine. The note card was made from an appealing array of pastel colors. It caught my eye immediately.  Although I didn’t want to infringe on anyone’s privacy, I felt compelled to open it. My curiosity won out. I opened the colorful note card and the neatly hand printed message inside said simply:

Life is beauty, praise it.
Life is a puzzle, solve it.
Life is opportunity, take it.
Life is sorrowful, experience it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a goal, achieve it.
Life is a mission, fulfill it. 


Wherever that message came from, whoever placed it there, and why I picked it up, I’ll never know. I’m a firm believer that there are no accidents. From that moment on, I had a smile on my face, a song in my heart and the previously dismal day took on a whole new meaning.  Thanks, angel.  You’re always welcome in my world.
