20 thoughts on “Rights, Wrongs, and Reasons

    1. Hi Tiffany! Following you on fb too. Looks like we are both doing #UBP14 as well. Enjoy!

  1. I absolutely believe that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the timing that we have in mind isn’t the one God has for us, so we have to wait it out. In that waiting, other things happen for a reason!

    I had a pretty hectic weekend, Kimberly. I’m travelling next week, and I’m hosting a Sole Hope shoe cutting party this weekend, so I’ve been ripping and running. But I’m excited about the party, and the trip home for Easter and my mom’s birthday will be great as well.

  2. First off, Kimberly, I LOVE that quote by MM. How fitting for this post…

    While I know it wasn’t the purpose of this post, but, I’m sorry it got me to thinking about politics and how sometimes the best person doesn’t win. Please excuse my cynicism, as I worked in politics for a while, and some of the stuff I saw made my stomach turn, but I digress…

    That said, I wholeheartedly believe that everything happens for a reason — including me having that job in politics, which I despised…I live with absolutely no regrets.

    What am I looking forward to this week? My son’s second round of swim lessons start tomorrow! Yay! I’m so excited for him because he LOVES the water…

    1. Politics can be dirty. My first job at 17 was as a page at the State Capitol. I reflect on things now that I saw and heard that were underhanded. But as a young kid, they went over my head. My son is taking swimming lessons for the second time this summer too. He also loves the water. Thanks Courtney!

  3. I struggle with the everything happens for a reason sentiment but that’s a great example of where it makes sense.

    1. I hear ya, Kate. I can think of a few things that made me think, “There is no good reason for that to have happened.” But I try to remain positive and think that I’ll eventually find the reason. Even if it doesn’t make sense.

  4. Sounds like even though he was not elected, he made an impact on people by showing a positive example.

  5. Hi Kimberly,
    What a wonderfully inspiring post. I was in Palm Springs during Spring Break and I saw a 26 foot statue of Marilyn Monroe in her “billowing skirt” pose – I blogged a photo of it. I had never seen this quote by her – and love the wisdom of her thoughts! I’m glad to hear your mom’s surgery turned out well, and I congratulate your candidate on his clean political campaign!

    1. Very sweet of you to say, Susan. I have always been a big Marilyn Monroe fan. When I drafted the post, I knew I wanted to express that sentiment. I went to Google images for it and there she was! I had no idea she had been quoted saying that.

  6. Yes I believe things happen for a reason I am a firm believer in that. We may not understand it at the time but when we look back at things we will see that if this didn’t happen then that would not have happened.

  7. What a great way to meet new people, even though your candidate did not win the election. Congrats on your membership acceptance into the Civic Club!
