Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?
My divorce many years ago. I was heartbroken and then some. I thought it was the end of my world. Actually it was the right thing for both of us. I am now with the love of my life. I would have never believed then where I am now and how completely happy I am.

  1. The first thing that came to mind was my divorce also. I don't know that my life is any better now than it was then but I know I'm a stronger person. Like the saying goes "what doesn't kill us makes us stronger" :)

    1. Divorce is a tough thing. Even if you want the divorce. :)

  2. Same answer... except I am not yet with the love of my life. It's coming though. Right? Yes, it must be!

    1. I agree. I was miserable for a very long time, but finally I realized I was far better off. :)

  4. I had a tyre blow out and rolled a car. Through a series of events that started that day, I now live in New Zealand.

  5. Yes, my stroke at the age of 27 shook everyone up and they were told I was going to die but I didn't. My stroke opened my eyes to what is really important in life and it taught me the values of what I had in my life especially a loving wife and family. It taught me to appreciate more what God has given me. Life has been difficult because of the stroke but it has made me a better man believe it or not. See ya.

    2. Paul- my sweetie had his eyes opened some years back due to a bad motorcycle accident. He considers he is now on "God's Time" and enjoys each day to the hilt. That was more than 25 years ago and yes he's still riding a motorcycle. Cheers to you- and your positive attitude!

  10. Oh yeah, lots of them! The most recent was when HP sent hubby's job to Texas and said we could either move or lose his job. We stayed, he lost his job, went back to school and got an even better job still in IT but not one that can be outsourced! Yay! Plus we're still living in one of our most favorite places ever!

    Hope you enjoy your day Sandee! Scritches to Little Bit!

    1. That would have been a lot of stress indeed. You did the right thing even though it was hard. :)

  11. I agree. Heartbreaks in the past felt like the end of the world. If only I'd known then what the future held for me: Bill. :) So glad now that those other relationships ended.

  12. Yep, when we were young we didn't use our brains as much as our hearts. Bad mistake in the long run. Glad we both figured this out. :)

  13. Sandee- my answer is exactly your answer! Decades ago I was devastated by divorce and my mothers death both in the same year. Three years later I met my sweetheart and best friend Russell- a year later we married and I have never looked back. I just wish my mom could have met him. Aren't we just the luckiest women!!!

  15. Yes, our year in Ohio and all the crap that came with it. Had we not been there, we would have never gotten here, where we are both much happier. While it wasn't the best of times, it ended up being the stepping stone for the best of times. God has a funny way of making even the worst come out well.

    1. I know you two are extremely happy where you are. You did have a rough go of it in Ohio. I'm so glad that's behind you. :)

  16. Oh Sandee, so many things...First, the same as for you-Divorce- Which turned out for the best, because my son was born during my second marriage.

    It's funny you asked this question, because a friend and I were talking about this subject only days ago. For me, the older I become, the more situations I have to thank God for having experienced, in addition to "Unanswered Prayers."

    Super great question!

    Big hugs and tons of love- :)

    Have a happy day Sandee-

  23. Dear Sandie, I went through a divorce after a long marriage and Hurricane Sandy at the same time and it does build both character and strength. I do believe the Lord does not give us more than we can handle. Blessings dear and hugs, Catherine xo

  24. When I read the question Sandee my 1st thoughts were almost word for word what you wrote when I read your answer. As you said it was like the end of my world then 4 years later I met Michelle & now after 18 years of marriage we are still very much in love & I can honestly say she is my best friend
