chance or fate

Are we meant to be in a place at a time or is it chance that puts us there? On a Tuesday at around quarter past one we are normally waiting at a railway crossing near our home. Not today because Elijah finished therapy half an hour earlier than usual and I had work to do in Leipzig. Today we were not we we would normally be at that time. Today at around quarter past one there was a major train crash at our railway crossing injuring over 50 people. The train derailed because it hit a car that was pushed onto the level crossing. I keep thinking how often we are waiting for the train to pass and we are first in line. I keep thinking how excited Elijah is everytime he sees the train race past. I keep thinking it could have been us? Today we had a guardian angel. Let´s hope and pray that this little fellow will always stay around to protect us.
