Hints of Something Else

Those of you who know me, know I am not a religious person, but I do like to think there is something bigger than me out there. Ever since my dad passed away I have seen hints of that something bigger. There are times when I simply know he is still with me. This was one of those times.
Things have been pretty hectic lately. School has been stressful, and Jason and I are trying to plan a wedding and find a home. The other day I was at the Sugarhouse Petco picking up some food and such for the kids, when I decided to stop by Old Navy. I walked in and saw a table full of t-shirts with different fish designs and started sifting through. My dad was crazy about fish, especially seahorses. I had a hard time finding anything in my size and was about to walk away when I felt a shirt fall on my foot. I reached down to pick it up and found a large seahorse design sitting there in my size. Slightly startled, I grabbed it and headed for the dressing room. At that moment the words "Just go back to the places where we used to go, and I'll be there" rang out on the intercom. Of course it was just one of the many 80s songs programmed in to Old Navy's music that day, but it still got to me.
Long-story-short, I bought the shirt and maybe it'll replace that seahorse tattoo I was planning on. Maybe.......
