Josh found Claire on lunch break outside their office building, all alone by herself, with her eyes closed enjoying the midday sun.
Claire was pursuing a career in dance when tragedy struck. Five years ago, the car she was riding in crashed into a ravine and left her a paraplegic. She went back to school and later became a software engineer in the same company where he worked.
“A penny for your thoughts?” Josh asked his now fiancée.
“I’m just thinking,” she said, “everything happens for a reason. If it weren’t for that freak accident, I wouldn’t have met you.”
