Small World

On Saturday evening there was a knock on our door. It turned out to be neighbors who lived down the street. They moved in about a year ago and have two young kids, one of whom, daughter Ella, is on the neighborhood swim team with Mia and Owen.

"We just made an amazing discovery," said Bruce, the dad. "The hard drive I keep all the family pictures on crashed. My brother-in-law fixed it for me and gave it back this morning. After the meet, I was looking through them with Ella to make sure everything was there. She saw this and said 'That's Mia!'"

He turned his cell phone towards me and there was a picture of Ella, Mia and Owen petting a cow at a local farm. Taken two years ago, at least a year before they moved into our neighborhood and we ever met.

Don't let anyone tell you this isn't a small world.

Just more proof that people are supposed to be in our lives - when they're supposed to be there :)
