Musings...

After over a month of no physical sport I am finally allowed to play hockey again! I think it is the second last week of summer hockey and I am so looking forward to the run around, who would ever have thought!
The kids and I were driving through Booterstown this morning and we saw the apartment we very nearly rented and it got me thinking.
If we had rented that apartment...I would never have met Irene, never had the most amazing land lord/lady/neighbours, would never have joined Three Rock Hockey Club (GULP!) and then would probably not have found out about the school Jess goes to now...there are so many more and it amazes me how small decisions in our lives can have such a huge knock on effect down the line. Everything happens for a reason is one of my favourite motto's and the reason we did not take Booterstown was clearly the work of a higher power!!!
