“Saturday and Sunday were sworn enemies until one day when they both decided to sit down and talk. They found out that they both liked the same food. They found out that they both liked to drink the same drinks. They both found out that they both liked to play the same sports. They both found out that they liked to watch the same TV programs. They both found out that they loved their children & their families. They became the best of friends after that, and the rest is history.” – Anthony Hicks
This weekend’s musing offering is on the idea that perhaps when we meet other people we are meeting some part of ourselves. Moreover, no meeting or encounter with another person (positive or negative) is by chance, but planned somehow, someway in the larger scheme of things. Some thoughts to ponder, if you so choose. Happy weekend.

We are all “standing on the shoulders of giants” (Isaac Newton), many of whom are the unsung heroes and heroines of our past who have encouraged and who have nurtured us, to help us become who we are meant to be.
Have a restful evening and my prayers for you for a vibrant tomorrow.
