This just happened to me last night. (3/25/19) I thought it strange and wanted to share to get your impressions. (I'll explain my thinking at the end.)
A little over 40 years ago, I met a little girl on the playground at school. We were both 8 years old. She was new to the school and I was one of those kids that would rather play on the swings alone than be in a group of kids. She and I became fast friends. Before you knew it, we were best friends doing everything together. Even as adults we were very close. Our kids are all close in age too.
2 1/2 years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer and not given much time. We were still quite close (except for the miles between us) but, as happens in life, we had an argument or two. As time went on, we would talk here and there, but her cancer progressed and she passed away a few weeks ago. Luckily for me, we were able to make amends first.
Anyway, last night I was really missing her and was talking to her. My husband was downstairs listening to the stereo. I was apologizing to her for not standing up at her funeral and saying a few words (I have social anxiety and can't get up in front of a group of people.) I apologized for not being by her side as much as I wanted to or felt I should have. And on and on I'm sure you get the picture. I asked her before closing my eyes to come talk to me in my dreams just so I could know she's OK. As I laid my head down and closed my eyes I heard the song "Thank you for being a friend" (Theme song from "The Golden Girls) come on the stereo from downstairs.
I am not sure what all of you will say this is. One part of me truly wants to believe it was her telling me it's OK. But the other part of me says it was just a total coincidence that this particular song played right then. I am tending to believe the latter although I would like someone to convince me it was the former.
Thanks for any input.
