This post inspired by V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #53: Lottery
Life is a lottery that we’ve already won. But most people have not cashed in their tickets.
Have I won some kind of life lottery?
Unknowingly playing the right numbers at the right time?
What are the chances I would live as long as I have?
What are the chances I would give birth to two healthy babies?
What are the chances I would be born healthy for that matter?
I am convinced…life is not random.
Everything does happen for a reason…
What about that split second miss at the stoplight
When the accelerating lumber truck nearly T-boned my car
The hitchhiking car ride…locked doors, high speed, narrow road…when I was 17
Was it chance or divine design or perseverance…or a lucky combination…that made it possible to emerge from a dark childhood hell. Finding peace…blinking in the brightness.
I am eternally grateful and thankful I beat the odds…whatever they were.
Whatever the reason.
