Is it a coincidence?

My day started out OK, then quickly slid downhill. Our plans changed 100 times today, which is so frustrating to me and obviously to my middle child as well because he has been throwing tantrums off and on for 2 hours. I have lost my temper with him and and have been brought close to tears out of pure frustration. We are now home for a short time and he has screamed himself to sleep. I collapsed in the red chair with a handful of mail to read feeling horribly cranky and totally defeated. I saw an envelope from a former student's mother, a graduation announcement! A boy I had as a first grader is graduating from high school in June. His mother sent me the nicest note, a note I really needed today of all days.
She thanked me for helping Ross get a great start in school and believing in him. What a special compliment. Is it just a coincidence that that note arrived in the mail today? I choose to think it is a gentle reminder from Someone who knows my every need.

  1. I think you're right.

    Sorry we didn't get to hook up yesterday. Maybe we'll come to a game this weekend...
