Here's Your Sign.....

Do you believe in signs from beyond?
I do.

I've always been warned or forewarned about certain events that are about to happen in my life.

I can tell you who is calling on the phone before I answer it...9 times out of 10 I'm right.

I have premonitions and dreams about things that happen a few days-weeks-months or even years later.....

Every time I've been in an auto accident I've seen or noticed 10 times the usual amount of commercials or PSA on TV or the radio warning or cautioning about "buckling up" or about reviewing my life insurance coverage.
True to form- after a few weeks of this I'd be involved an auto accident.

Every time anyone I know gets pregnant all I hear about or see on TV is baby clothes- baby shampoo- baby food or pregnancy tests advertised for a couple months before I find out about it.
I can also tell if someone is pregnant if I am around them because my ulcer kicks into high gear and I throw up from the pain. I've actually told my sisters they were preggers before they even knew.

Every time I've had a new job offer I've seen signs or adverts for education or new career choices over and over again for weeks before I receive the job offer/s.

Which brings me to the present........ and I'm beginning to get really freaked out.
For the past few months I've been seeing-or just noticing- a steady increase in the adverts for life insurance coverage. I've also received a few mailings from several funeral homes pertaining to funeral pre-arrangements.

Now, part of this I can understand and explain away as pure and utter coincidence. I DID inquire a couple YEARS ago about funeral pre-arrangements- when my daddy started getting sick again he urged us all to get our affairs in order and so I made a few inquiries to put his mind at ease- but that was AGES/YEARS ago. And also, I figure I would notice the life insurance ads more since Dads passing and his birthday being tomorrow and all. It would just be natural....right?

Still, while I can come up with a plausible explanation for this, past experience with "SIGNS" makes me more than just a little wary of it all.

Wouldn't you be?

At any rate- I'm taken care of in all the arrangements and coverage except for the "specific" details. I know what they are- Paulius and I have discussed the details- I just have yet to make the financial pre-arrangements so he wouldn't have to deal with any of it.

I DO need to take care of that.....just to be on the safe side.....don't you think?

Am I being overly sensitive about all this? Or do you think I have valid reasoning to be just a tiny bit concerned?

I don't want to be overly concerned about it and WORRY- but if the pattern fits...... I can't HELP but worry.

Don't work yourself into such a state. I think you're just going through a rough time right now. It's natural that you would notice pregnant ladies when you or someone close to you is preggers. Whatever state of mind you are in, that is the type of thing you will notice more. You're thinking of your father's death, so funerals and funeral arrangements, etc. are overtaking your mind. Relax girl, read a good book, take a bubble bath, or otherwise pamper yourself, and realize that it is okay if you don't really feel cheerful for a while.
Smooches and hugs.

I wouldn't get yourself worked up over this. You are probably just more senstive to it right now.

I do believe in signs, very much so, but it's only a sign if there is no other plausible reason for it - and you have a very plausible reason to be noticing.
