Have you ever stopped to think about how many little coincidences had to happen for you to be in just the spot that brought you to meet your favorite people? And yet, they seem made for you. They are a blessing to you. What a miracle that is. That all those twists and turns your life has taken has brought you to this place and these people to care about.
The whole poem, excerpted above, is stunning:
Out of the Mist
Out of the mist of a million probable worlds,
Out of the dizziness of a long dream,
Like a bee that found its nectar in a field of stones,
Or a poet who heard his heart’s music amid cries of war;
The precision was that of divine intervention,
Art born of deeper beauty,
And just like birds find home after a long winter,
And a smile finds its way to a melancholy face,
I found you.by Lahab Asset AlJundi, included in Healing the Divide, Poems of Kindness & Connection, Edited by James Crews
Today, let us be grateful for all those coincidences that brought us to our people.
