I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we're all teachers - if we're willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door!

Good morning Paul. And like the members of the teachers union, some answer the calling and teach and many more wait for Friday to cash their paycheck, Enjoy your day.

Good morning, Paul... what an insightful comment from Marla Gibbs. She's right... we make our own miracles (or as I've often said, we make our own luck).

The road looks really close to the ocean, perhaps it is just the angle but I would worry about the tide coming up and destroying the road, haha.

Hello Paul - all kinds of lessons are taught each day.  Some are learned quickly, others over time and then there are those that are repeated - maybe in a different way.  We each learn differently.  It seems lessons teach that way too.

Hi Paul- I do believe that things and people happen to us for a reason. All we have to do is be open and willing to accept what is put before us.

The sky pictured looked very much like our sky this morning.  However, a storm has moved in with full force.
