I Heard this Story Today…

January 20, 2011

This family is in a van heading to visit their family for the thanksgiving holiday. The trip is going to take about 6 hours + depending on rest stops. In the van are the parents and their 4 kids. One of the kids has a medical condition that requires ongoing care and because of his condition road trips of this length are not encouraged. Flying was too expensive so the family choose to drive. About 3 1/2 hours into the trip the kid began to get sick. The parents didn’t know what to do, so they started searching for a hospital to take him to for treatment. They were on a stretch of highway that did not have  towns along the side. Suddenly they saw the blue hospital signs and came upon an exit. They followed the blue hospital signs until they came to the hospital. They went to emergency and their son was treated. As they were leaving they thanked the doctor and told him they appreciated the blue hospital signs that brought them to the hospital, as they had no idea where a town with a hospital was located. He said there were no blue hospital signs, that they were to be installed at a later date. On their way back to the highway, the signs that brought them to the hospital WERE NO LONGER THERE.

I know, I know…WHAT?!?

  •  Have you ever wondered how you got to that door that you just walked through?
  • Have you ever wondered how you suddenly went to that bar (rather than the other that you normally go to) and met your partner?
  • Have you ever wondered how someone came into your life?

Is it by accident? Divine intervention? Coincidence? or Luck? That story has resonated with me all day. As I look around my office and wonder how did I get here? Was it by my sheer determination? Was it with some cosmic help? Do we create the lives for ourselves or are they created for us? So much of life appears to be mysterious, but one thing that is not mysterious to us at GAI (gunwel.com) is taxes. Let Gunwel Tax & Bookkeeping help you with your financial needs. You can wonder how you got here, but just get here, as we are here to help. Call us today at 212-979-6830 or stop by for a visit. Come share with us a “how’d that happen story…”
