I’ve been thinking a lot today.

About loss.

About chance.

About circumstances happening for a reason.

About clarity and knowledge.

About importance, and the things that are.

I’ve had long conversations today. Deep conversations. Conversations that reveal the soul and break the heart.

I’ve prayed. I’ve been thankful.

I’ve wondered why and how.

I’ve been angry and sad and confused and perplexed.

Above all, I’m beginning to realize something I’ve known all along:

There is a plan, and I want to be part of it.
