I believe that things happen for a reason. They may be good or may be bad but they will happen and we have to learn to live with them or change them if we can.

We do not have to agree with the ‘things’ that happen or like them or hate them but they will happen. You may think it is religious or nature or whatever but you have to learn how to deal with that ‘thing’ that happens.

Life goes on and we have to adjust every single day.

Be thankful every day when you are here to have ‘things’ happen to you and your loved ones. The opposite would not be good!
