Just In
for What Had to Happen

I've read this several times but not sure if I ever commented on it. One of my favorites. I often think about this story and it's points as I wander about my own life. We must all think about how fate moves the chess pieces around in our lives, without us being able to see them until later. Lovely story.

Hey I just realized that the review never went through.

Here it is.

I loved this story.

Yes sometimes it takes some tradedy of some kind to bring people to meet.

I am speaking from personal experiences in My own life that have taken place.

It is Fate Too.

Such a lovely touching little conversational story just perfect.

Fate - indeed a difficult thing to understand, but wise is the person who learns to see the good coming out of the bad, and I don't think it can be applied more accurately than in the case of these two guys. I'm glad you listened in on this conversation.

My favorite part was the thought of the judge running through the known 'doldrum dates' in his mind as he tried to determine why Mark was staring at the stars at 3 a.m. Looking forward to seeing more from you soon!

This is an intriguing look at another angle of "Why bad things happen to good people". The parallel thoughts of these two guys (and the quickness with which they understand each other) is a very nice change of pace. That both men admit that they've at least partly come to grips with the negative things in their lives, while regretting what the other had to sacrifice-it's the perfect epitome of friendship.

Yeah, it's kind of a dilemma, isn't it? When good things come from bad circumstances, is it okay to be grateful for the end result, even if others suffered in the process? The guys came up with as reasonable an answer as there is, and I was glad to get to listen in as they talked it through.

Thanks for posting.

I've thought about this conversation many times and was so pleased to finnally see someone flesh it out! and what a fine job you did. H and M are in fine form and the conversation was very real. I think it's something they both would think about often and in a strange way, be thankful for the circumstances, and yet feel guilty for being thankful. Like Mark said, so many sacrifices had to be made for him to get where he is today...kinda messes with your brain. Makes a person wonder if there really is a big plan of which we are all a part. I'm just so glad they have each other!

Thanks for a great story and could you do me a favor? Write more, please!

_What_ a lovely story! I love the chat between the two and the way they understand each other. Lots of great lines and I'm not going to single any out as favorites because there are just too many. The ending is just perfect, though, and deserves a gold star of its own. Beautiful job and I'm looking forward to lots more from you!
