{September 2, 2009}   I had the weirdest experience.

Today, I walked out in the holding room and caught the eye of a patient. He told me he was getting sick, and needed a puke bucket. No problem, I thought, and procured him one. I also grabbed a couple of alcohol swabbies and held them under his nose. Don’t ask me why it works, it just does. So I got to talking to him and he said, very matter-of-factly, “You’re a mother, aren’t you.” I told him I was about to be. He said “it’s a boy, huh?” Whoa. I hadn’t told him that. Then he went on to tell me how he knew how hard I’d prayed for a baby, and how this baby was gonna be the joy of my life. Ok, that wasn’t such a stretch, right? Then he started talking about my dogs, as if he lived in my house! Then, he said “And don’t worry about putting your husband on the back burner for awhile. He’ll be tickled pink and enjoy every minute of it. Some people are just born mothers, and some aren’t. You’re one of the ones who are. I noticed how you seem to be so at peace and happy, and I just knew that you’re with the man you’re meant to be with.” Now. I grew up in church and learned all about miracles and blessings. I’m not the best player on the team, but this was definitely a blessing. I just don’t see how he could have known all that about me without divine intervention. Absolutely everything he said was spot on!!! He even said that he didn’t know if he was meant to tell me all that or not, it just came to him. I didn’t know what else to say. I just told him that I’d grown up always hearing that there were blessings to be found everywhere. At this point, I was summoned back to work (and to quit running my mouth, cause, you know, I never do that) and had to put an end to the conversation. But it was absolutely, positively the single weirdest thing that has ever happened to me.

How cool. I am also a believer, but not really a ‘team player’. I totally believe in God, but also people with ‘sights’ like you described in this man. I think all of us have a little in us if we listen to it..just some more than others.

That is a goose-bump inducing story. 🙂

PS Glad you made him stop from vomiting!

Wasn’t it though. He also said that this wasn’t going to be my only child, and that I’ll have a surprise baby tacked on the end. Hell, he was right about everything else. Still creepy.

I met someone like that after suffering a very awkward and infuriating night of babysitting my boyfriend. He pinpointed my major insecurities and told me to keep doing what I was doing. It made my morning.

Wow…it may be weird but it is very cool!

How very cool! Some people really can see things – whether or not it is a gift from the Big Guy Upstairs, I don’t know, but believe it’s true.

On the day I left my apartment to elope (total secret) with Asshat #2, my self-proclaimed psychic next door neighbor came running after me and said, “Don’t do this. Don’t marry him. You’ll regret it.” And for a grand total of 18 months – until I got rid of his ass – I did.
