When we hear about challenging situations, we readily say that these things can happen to anyone, but I wonder how much we really believe it can happen to us. It’s like we live within invisible sheet of armor, confounded when touched by hard times, despite logically knowing that everything is part of life.
Some may say these examples are not entirely appropriate and that the odds of such incidences are slim. Nevertheless, the takeaway is that no one is impervious to both challenges and wondrous circumstances in this life. The “anyone” is you as it relates to situations of all types. If we recognize and accept that, then perhaps there will be fewer surprises and a greater sense of acceptance of what comes our way...and with any luck, an appreciation for the fortune of the every day.
