There’s this phrase that Muslims use: “Allah is the best of all planners.” If you’re not meant to do something or go somewhere, it’s not going to happen if God didn’t will it. I believe people of different faiths have something similar.
This concept was really brought home last weekend as I had so many things I needed to get to but never did. Instead, life was essentially put on hold as my family and I dealt with something personal. Although everything turned out ok, or as ok as things could possibly get under the circumstance, it still made me stop and think and think about the above phrase.
So anyways folks, even the best laid plans may never come to fruition if it’s not meant to be.
Oh, and go hug your mom.
