Truth. Steve in Baltimore County. I had my life all planned out in Texas. God changed my plan and sent me to Maryland. One of the best things that ever happened to me.

Anybody who thinks they have their life "all mapped out" is in for a rude awakening, IMHO! As most of us know from experience, one's entire life can change in a heartbeat--and usually not for the better. :>(

Sometimes I wonder what would have happened to me if I had followed my College Plan. I even had it mapped out so that I would end up with a Doctorate in my favorite subject.

Dropped out of college to marry this guy I had known a couple of months.

I know I wouldn't have as great a husband as I do. Maybe my kids, if any, would have turned out as well. But I doubt it.

Never have been able to have anything go the way I had planned and that includes all jobs and my move to here.
