"When it rains, it pours."
~ The Morton Salt Company ~

When we have what feels like more than we can handle,
It seems almost inevitable,
That something else comes along...
Why, I wonder.
To toughen us up?
To push us past the point of breaking into surrender?
To show us we are stronger than we think?
More resilient?
More capable?
None of the above?
All of the above?
Or maybe "Why?" is the wrong question.
Maybe the better question...
Maybe the only question really is 
"Why not?"

Life makes a mockery of my plans.
