Our friends Tony and Gabe retired in Puerto Vallarta a couple of years ago and it was wonderful spending time with them. Both spend an enormous amount of time volunteering for a nonprofit that coordinates physicians traveling in to do cleft palate surgery and another cause... beans and rice. In impoverished rural villages in Mexico, parents sending their kids going to school isn't high on the priority list when they can be working in the fields. But! When kids are fed at schools, that's a good reason for parents to ensure their children get a good meal: there comes a time when those kids crave knowledge and are transformed, then simply won't -not- go. Genius!
So... we get back to from Mexico late last night and needed a few things from the store today. Getting in the car, it's all-stop. How can it be that Sarah McLachlan is Madi's appointed delegate, and Sarah's "may you find some comfort here" song is playing? Madi wanted us to to go someplace and renew/enrich our connection, then she welcomed us back with that song playing on the radio in my car, or coincidence?
We don't believe in coincidence.
