So it all happened one day (not exactly so sure of the exact date) but we just picked up some new furniture that a friend of our families was giving away.
Later that day we put all of our old furniture down stairs, this furniture consisting of a couch and chair belonged to my grandmother and grandfather, both passed many years prior to that day. One of them must have gotten very angry that we did that because out of nowhere a shelf in the living room collapses. Mind you that my dad is a contractor so that shelf was extra supported. Odd? Well it gets creepier.
Breast Cancer has run in my family for decades, in fact that is what killed my grandmother. Anyway my Mother went to have her exam at her doctors. After the x ray they had her wait in the waiting room, they said that they may have found something. Out of nowhere the radio on the speaker in the waiting room began playing Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World..." The song that my mother and grandfather danced to at her wedding. She swore that she felt someone holding her, and that she could smell Old Spice Cologne which is what my grandfather always used to wear. And let's be realistic, how many guys go to those doctor offices. Oh there is more to come.
When I was waiting in the waiting room at the hospital when my other grandmother on my dads side was in the hospital for pneumonia, we weren't sure if she would make it, that same song (What a Wonderful World) began playing in the nurses station and I began to smell Old Spice Cologne, and I knew that it wasn't me because I hadn't put cologne on that day.
Just like my Grandfather was I am an avid bowler around my state. One Tournament in particular changed my whole outlook on the sport. I was well over 219 below pace... and I was kind of upset. Behind me were my mother and aunt (daughters of my grand father that was mentioned above) all of a sudden I hear the song "What a Wonderful World..." By Louis Armstrong and it was particularly loud, so I asked my mom to ask the front desk to please turn the music down, she replies "there is no music playing" at that point I though I was insane, but when I put my had in the ball I felt more confident then ever, and shot final games of 252 and 212 to place 5th. Where as I was going to be last.
I guess the question is was I scared. No. If anything I feel I have an angel, and angel that are watching over me.
