Do You Believe in Coincidences?

Hi, this is Leslie Harris. Have you ever heard one of the expressions, “There are no coincidences,” or “There are no accidents?” Is God/ Your higher power / the Universe trying to send you messages?

I was out shopping with a friend last week, and she was looking at some kid sized David Bowie shirts for her grandkids. She asked me to hold up an extra large kids shirt, and she noticed that it would fit her. Of course, I also noticed that it would fit me. I decided to buy one for myself, even though I certainly don’t need anymore t-shirts.

Anyway, that night had gotten pretty cold. My husband had already gone to bed, so I was fumbling around in the dark for an extra blanket when I knocked down a bin of random items. Unfortunately, that woke my husband. So when he got up to go to the bathroom, I turned the light on to pick up the stuff that was strewn all over the floor, and there in the midst of all of it was a long forgotten David Bowie button!

I got kind of excited about that, and decided that perhaps David Bowie is trying to send me a message. I think it might be something like, don’t be afraid to be weird, be yourself, and remember to take risks.

I’ve already worn the shirt a couple of times, and I actually pinned the button to my purse so that David can remind me to people when I’m feeling uncomfortable.

Does stuff like this happen to you? If so, do you think it’s just a coincidence, or do you think there’s a message? Let me know in the comments
