A friend of mine posted this NY Times article today about how it’s not just religious people who assign meaning to random things that happen to them in life. I’m reminded again that my baby was born 2 months early and it had nothing to do with anything I did. It had nothing to do with whether or not I “deserved” it. My baby also survived. That has nothing to do with anything good I did to “deserve” that. Both of these things were beyond my control.
