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!

This is one of the reasons that I am open to trying to get to know everyone that is put in my path.  Understanding the reason is often difficult though.

It might not be instantaneous, it could be years down the road, but I applaud you paying attention Brian England

Good morning Paul,

Love the photo and the quote is perfect. We always need to be mindful things happen for a reason and people we meet are put in our lives for a reason.

Good morning, Paul... who could disagree with Marla Gibbs on this? Certainly not I.  I realized a long time ago that much of what happens in life was no accident.

Everything happens for a reason from meeting people and more.  Thanks Paul for this one today.

Hi Paul- I do believe in what the quote suggests. When we look back at our path through life, we have to see that had we not met a certain person, our path would have been very different.

My wife and I were just talking about this the other day before I ever found this quote Kathy Streib

I had not heard of Marla Gibbs before.  She provides wise words in that quote.

Exactly!  Truly believe this is the way things are meant to be.  What's that poem, "People come into your life for a reason, a season...."  ?

Good morning Paul. Every path contains a lesson. You can learn from it or you can deny it. Denial is a waste of time. Enjoy your day.
