It usually comes after I've been thinking of my loved ones past and I do believe they are watching and are near us. It brings me some level of comfort to know that I can talk to my Grandmom...my Buddy...and shortly after what I was talking about seems to resolve itself or I "know" the answer now.
It's odd how this happens. Some would put if off as coincidence...others would say it's divine intervention... but me? I just like to think that there is someone somewhere watching over me and looking out for me.
