Traveling Guests

Source

I don't believe in accidents
or luck or chance or
happenstance.
Every path mine intersects
for purpose is designed.
Perhaps, there is a lesson here
that I'm to learn from you
or, perhaps, you have a mystery
to which I hold a clue.
There could be a lesson
we both are meant to learn
where, hand in hand, we walk a bit
before our paths, then, turn.
I don't have all the answers
and i don't pass all the tests,
but I am on a journey and
I welcome traveling guests.
I don't believe in accidents
or luck or chance or
happenstance
But if I'm lucky on this path,
the purpose i will find!

So cool--traveling guests--what would we be if it were not for those we are guided to and who are guided to us. I'm glad the world works that way and I'm glad you put it down on the page. DA

Very nice. I do believe we cross the paths of others for a reason. At that particular moment we not know why, we may never know why, but for sure there is a reason we meet and cross the paths of certain people.

Do you suggest that in your community of hubbers, you were meant to meet? That we all have something to learn from each other and something to share that we didn't have before? Because if so, you shared the feeling of welcome with me, to this community.

katyworthing, thank you for that. It means more than I can tell you.

mysterious-lee,that is precisely my belief. It is no accident that I wandered into this place, and no accident that you did, either. Thank you.
