I was milling over my stat counter yesterday afternoon.? I had an unusually high number of hits to Unexpected Miracles (well, if you call 12 high).? I decided to check it out.? I always look at the search hits to find out what people are searching for and finding my sites.? UM is no different.? This time I saw a search that I found interesting.? Someone had done a Yahoo search for Oleg Roy (the boy’s name).? I clicked on it and it took me to the search page and I browsed some of the other hits.? There was UM, our agency and a few others that were meaningless.? However, one stuck out.? It had names that I recognized.? Not only was there Oleg Roy, but Bethany Kate.? I clicked and noticed it was the obituary from the Arkansas City, KS, newspaper for the trusty husband’s grandmother, Bunny.
I cried as I read through the obit.? I miss her terribly.? When I was finished I stopped and thought… hmm, it’s this is right around the time that she died.? I looked at the date on the obit.? November 19, 2006.? I live in a bubble of oblivian so I had to look at a calender to figure out what yesterday’s date was.? November 19, 2008.
I was stunned.
We have this thing in our family that whenever we find a penny on the ground we say, “Popo is saying hello.”? Not long after Bunny passed away Derek’s parents found two touching pennies on the ground.?? The idea of that brings us all to tears.? Yesterday was no exception.
It was if Bunny was there, saying hello.
