In real life as well

This has happened to two persons with whom I am personally familiar.

The first was my aunt who was struck by a car as a pedestrian, and sustained significant traumatic injuries. In the course of her treatment, the physicians found a latent and much more lethal malady. The likelihood is that the problem (a cancer) would not have been discovered until it became incurable. Its discovery and treatment gave us many more happy (and healthy) years.

The second was a college student of mine who was a promising athlete. He sustained a leg injury that threatened to end his career. In the course of treatment, they found a rare and lethal bone cancer. Usually, this type of cancer is not discovered until after it has spread significantly. After an intense round of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, he now appears to be cancer free (BH).

Although we should “not count” upon miracles, Divine Providence, or “serendipity”, we can be (1) thankful for their occurrence, and (2) humble enough to realize that we cannot always appreciate all of a circumstance and its consequences.

Life isn't always black or white

Sometimes G-d writes with a crooked pen!

It's true good outcomes happen

It's true that such things happen. Few weeks before an overseas trip of indefinite duration, I got restaurant food poisoning. My feeling deathly sick resulted in a colonoscopy which found a tumour in a location where it would have been found only after it had spread to the lymph nodes and throughout the body. Initially annoyed about the food poisoning, flight and storage cancellations, etc., I was later grateful that the sequence of events probably saved my life later on. Sometimes bad events have a good outcome. We don't know until later. Life is interesting.

not true

These things DO happen in real life! Like the person who was donating a kidney & they found a tumor or the one who's son broke his leg & his father took him to the Dr. the morning of 9-11. my husband fell out of his high chait when he was 1 & broke his collar bone, while at the Dr. they found something that very well might have turned cancerous.......there are books full of these stories. you just have to open your eyes!

Divine Providence

I have experienced HaShem's guidance, direction and wisdom in my life for many years and on a daily basis. One thing that has been a 'constant' inspiration for me is that at times when I am seemingly running late to get out the door and drive to work, I have been sometimes running 'late', but later when I am on that very same road and way to work I have heard that I had I been there 10 minutes before, I would have gotten in a serious car accident. So make no mistake about it friends, G-d is watching out for His own.
