A Friday Eye Opener

It is amazing how one decision can change the course of your life.

This morning I decided to take an earlier train to work. This decision changed the course of my day, my weekend and potentially my life. The train that I was going to take derailed and crashed, resulting in a death and potentially more injuries. The story is still developing.

After I got over the initial shock and depression about the situation and the people injured, I started to feel a little helpless.

Are we all bound to the decisions we make or is there some greater reason why things happen?

Maybe I am thinking a little too cosmically, I saw THOR last night, but for me, this morning was proof that there is something greater up there. Yes, we are masters of our own decisions and the choices we make are our own, however, this morning showed me that I do have guardian angels looking out for me. Never stop being thankful for what you have and the life that you own.

Praying for all those on the Metra 636 this morning.

She got the call today
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took her breath away
She said she didn’t believe
It could happen to me
I guess we’re all one phone call from our knees
