Weird Coincidences

This is just weird — really not too scary.

When I got married, my mom was sad because her mom (my grandmother) could not be there.  (I was in 7th grade when she died.)  When it came to the point in the ceremony to light the unity candle, Bill and I did so.  We went to blow out our tapers and somehow blew out the unity candle.  Yes, everyone in church laughed (I was freaking out in my head).  Fast forward to last year.  My sister swore she blew out her taper at the wedding.  However, the flame did not go out.  It looked like it relit itself.  After my wedding, my mom wondered if that was my grandmother saying “Hey, I am here”.  After my sister’s wedding, she was sure.  We have one more weird candle happening.   When Will was baptised this year, the priest had a really hard time getting his baptismal candle to light.  My mom, sister, and I all looked at each other and smiled.

Weird Coincidences – Part II — I realized this in the hospital before we ever went home with Will.  Madison was born 1-7; Will was born 6-7.  Madison was 3 days early.  Will was 3 weeks early.  Madison was born at 1 in the afternoon.  Will was born at 1 in the morning.  Just enough coincidences to be weird.

  1. Oooooooo – chills down my spine. Stuff like this makes you stop and think, doesn't it?

    My trackback for the Postie Carnival just showed up today – that's kind of weird, to, huh? But I'm glad it did so I'd remember to go visiting!
