I often say that I don't believe in coincidences – I believe that all things are related even if they may not seem so to others.
For example – my son got married on January 5th – to his long time g.f. – presided over by a judge at the marriage court in Chicago. [No one there but them as they will do a ceremony and reception in Oregon this summer]
That date also marked the 7th anniversary of my buying my house in Portland Oregon!
My son was with me here when I put in the offer but had gone back to Chicago soon after and I am not sure he knows the closing date. [Everyone in the neighborhood knows as it was the ice storm of 2004.]
If I had not moved to Portland, he would not have been here to visit me one summer and meet his now-wife…so no coincidence that the dates match – it was already in the "scheme of the universe."
There are so many more universe schemes at play but those are grist for another mill – or another post…
