delusion

Carpe Diem #706, Delusion


A good deal of my life was spent thinking there was a special reason for my existence. That 'special' reason found me doing public speaking about the horrors of child abuse.  After intense training sessions, the word about a charter by the United Nations for the law of the sea sent me near and far spreading the word.  A leader at state level gatherings, a leader locally, a mentor for young mothers, Bible school, Sunday school teaching, working with underprivileged of all ages were but some of the special calls I felt.  People and causes alike were helped. 

Is there a 'special' reason for me to be in existence?  Was/am I deluding myself?  Who will ever know.  Special or not, yesterday my husband and I painted a room.  The room for a fourteen year old young lady who has become part of our lives.  The joy in her face when she saw the room was not delusion.  It was special enough to last for a lifetime!
