Often, if not always, bad things happen for what are ultimately good reasons, though we can’t see it at the time.
Case in point, a hockey official who was cross-checked in the face by a player that he’d kicked out of the game. After the official was taken to the hospital to be patched up, doctors discovered a brain tumor.
The attack may have saved his life, but I’m sure the official was thinking anything but on his way to the hospital.
Just something to remember whenever we’re feeling sorry for ourselves in the ambulance of life. The reason is often right around the corner.
