“On our very own bed spread, A pajama holiday…” Let’s Spend the Day in Bed by Over the Rhine
Over the Rhine, by the way, is one of my most favorite bands, ever! Leanne and I went to go see them in DC at the wine festival. Remember?
I am going to try to do WordPress’ post a day challenge. Each day they have a different question to answer in your blog in order to get you blogging more. Today’s question is: Do you believe everything happens for a reason? Why or why not?
I would have to say that yes, I do think that everything happens for a reason. Even when you can’t tell what that reason is at the time, there is always some kind of teaching point and lesson to be learned. If we hadn’t moved to Ohio in 1991; I wouldn’t have met my best friend! Of course in 1991, I did not want to move to Ohio. I wanted every day to move back to Michigan, but that was not going to happen.
In student teaching if I hadn’t gone to some of the “scary” schools to observe and student teach; I wouldn’t have all the tricks in my back pocket that I do.
Everything does happen for a reason. Just like Marilyn says…”…things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
— Marilyn Monroe
