Some things don’t happen as we planned…in fact, most things don’t. No matter how well you plan, there’s always the possibility of some unforeseen event. Sometimes, these events are small, like the way you didn’t anticipate having to sit in traffic an extra hour or so and have consequences like being late to work (which, I suppose depending on your boss and how late you work might change the definition of “small event”). Other things, can be life-changing…many of us have had at least one of those moments where you just have to sit down for a minute and attempt to absorb what has just happened.
A young lady here in Kpong had an experience like that last week. For her privacy’s sake, I’ll not say too much about the details, but suffice it to say, it’s been an emotional time for her, her family, and us as we know her quite well. In the face of her news, the MoM team and her family were pleased to discover that, although you can’t plan completely for the future, sometimes we are more prepared than we thought at first.
