Sometimes I wonder why. The question floods my mind and takes over my entire being. I suppose the worst time this occurs is when we lose someone we love or watch a person we care for face turmoil and disasterous consequences because of a poor choice... because of a foolish decision... because they fail to follow the guidance and directions and warnings we give.
In these times I find no pleasure in being right about my warnings. I gain no satisfaction in watching my predictions come true. "I told you so" lies tasteless on my tongue. It is still a troubling thing to witness the fall out, the collateral damage when things go wrong for others.
