It was horrible, but if it weren’t for the shutting down of the Amsterdam airport during a snowstorm last December, I wouldn’t have spent over 24 hours in line bonding with some truly wonderful people from several different continents.

It was horrible, but if it weren’t for losing Dad quickly to cancer and a sister to a 5-year battle with cancer, I doubt that I’d be able to relate as well to those that are going through the same emotions.

It was horrible, but if I hadn’t lost my job when I did, I wouldn’t have got to spend so much time with my mom in her last months and days.

It was horrible, but if it wasn’t for my learning my mother suffers from depression, I wouldn’t understand her as well as I do now.

It was horrible, but if it wern’t for the mortgage industry taking a dump and our title company being bought out and then bankrupt to where we were all laid off, I wouldn’t gone back to the car business and met my current husband.

It was horrible, but if my wife hadn’t married that jerk who forced her to move 2000 miles away before cheating on her and leaving her, I wouldn’t have met her.
I am truly grateful.
