“Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul.”
When something terrible happens, we want to know why. That question occupies your days and your nights. It’s hard to have a thought without that question taking over.
It’s hard to understand why things happen. Why bad things happen to good people and why good things happen to seemingly bad people. It is a question that is beyond the scope of our understanding. Life is a series of event and memories– many storms and celebrations. One event does not, tell the whole picture. One event could never tell the whole story.
The fact is, some things will never make sense. Chances are, you will never understand why this happened. Instead, focus on doing the best you can with this particular storm. As devastating as this is, these single events are meant to shape our lives. This event might be the event that confirms your beliefs, ignites your passion, or solidifies your strength.
Losing your loved one is not the total of who you are; losing your loved one is not your legacy. It is another piece in the puzzle of life. Let it plant something on your soul.
