It was 5:30 Friday night and  I was home alone feeling lonely. I really wanted to go see Florence Foster Jenkins with Meryl Streep. It started at 6:30. I didn’t want to go alone, but I felt like it was too late to call any friends. When Steve was here we would go to a movie on very short notice. But now I felt like I need to ask someone the night before. As I headed upstairs, thinking about perhaps texting someone to go to the movie, I received a text from my friend Cindy that said, I want to go see movie Florence Foster Jenkins. I don’t think my husband would go to that one. Do you want to go with me tonight or tomorrow night? It surprised me so much I squealed and dropped my phone. I texted back, Yes! How about tonight? It starts at 6:30. Really, what are the odds that she would text me about exactly what I was thinking about? Coincidence? I don’t believe in coincidences. I think there’s more to  it. We had a great night at the movies. After being laid up for two weeks with a cold and an injured knee, I was thrilled to get out of the house. And now I know it’s OK to ask someone to go out on short notice.
After the movie Cindy told me that she had felt Steve close by all week and he is watching over me. We both agreed that this “coincidence” was probably inspired by Steve. Isn’t that cool?
