i heard this weekend at my cousin's wedding that great trees are only as strong as their root system. that sequoias can only survive together- because their roots intertwine to make an intricate web of strength.
and so, i think, it is with people as well. two are always better than one. and many are often better than few. and so it also is with the intricacies of life. every event happens for a reason. so that we can understand.
and so it also is with fate. if everything happens for a reason, then every person you smile to in the hallway or surrender your parking spot to at the mall-you indeed have an effect on their life. and you become part of the great webbed intricacies of their life.
congratulations molly and jamie. im so happy for you.
