I was talking with a friend that told me she didn't believe in coincidences, that there really are no accidents and every thing happens for a reason. As I sat alone and pondered this thought I came to the conclusion that things are meant to "go wrong" on this planet to teach us something.
It's getting close to the time now for everyone that knew Judy to go to her funeral service. I found some beautiful poems about life and death and put a different one in cards to Judy's husband, son, and daughter. We will always love and miss Judy.
For some reason I have an aunt that passed away years ago too and she's been on my mind a lot. One of the last stories I wrote on another website I added memories of her in it. I try to remember the dates they have all passed away, and light a candle for them then before I go to sleep. I will do that on their birthdays too. I couldn't remember her birthday but knew I wrote it down somewhere...
I was watching TV this past weekend when I saw a movie about Mars. It was one of those "B" flicks that everyone laughs about. I told Mr. C I read somewhere "real happenings" are added to these made up movies to get the public's reaction. Hmmm, interesting. As I was watching the show and wondering if a big reveal will happen soon about aliens and other things hidden from us, a scene came on TV where a couple was walking underneath the sign of a movie theater. It listed the movies that would be playing and the actors. One of the actors name was JUDY WEST! That's my friends name that we were about to have a funeral service for?!
I've always remembered when my aunt Cora passed away but have never remembered her birthday. I was on Face Book looking for family that is left. I don't go on there often. Each time you log on they will show you some past memories of years gone by on that date. There it was, a memory of me talking about how I missed my aunt Cora and had been thinking of her on her birthday on August the 13th! The memory was from 2010, what are the odds that I happened to log on to Face Book that particular day?! I had just missed her birthday by five days.
So when these two events just recently happened I didn't take it lightly or dismiss it. When I saw my friends name on TV I laughed and yelled out "hi Judy!" Then just days later finding a post from 9 years ago on face book about my aunt Cora, I said "I'm so happy I know your birthday now and will write it down so I don't forget again." Do I believe they were talking to me from the other side? YES! Everything truly is connected!
