I know I'm supposed to be working on moderation and going with the flow and letting things happen as they will...
And mostly I know not to question why things happen, because I'll never receive a satisfactory answer.
But every now and then, I hit a bump in the road and I wonder What the hell?
1. Two days ago, I was in on a conference call with the parent of a special needs student. This meeting had already been scheduled one time before - and while we're all assembled there, the parent (on the phone) informs the counselor that he is really, really busy and can't participate in his child's meeting right now. What the hell?#1.
2. This morning, I found out one of my hardest-working, most lovely students has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer. What the hell?#2.
3. On a very windy night, my oldest son opens the front seat car and dings the black Chevy Impala next to us. The guy proceeds to get out of the car, examine the non-existent mark, and mumble something about getting a guy to fix it for him. What the hell?#3.
I know things are happening in this universe that are above and beyond my knowledge. I have no right to question or assume anything in this world. But, still, I just cannot process these things at all.
