Synchronicity and Band-Aids



My husband returned from a business trip and said he had experienced a synchronicity. (I love it when he talks like that.) Anyway, it seems he had been jogging while away when he evidently fell down, scraping his leg. He also mentioned all the friendly, pretty, people on the jogging trail. I'm sure that didn't have anything to do with the fall...

The synchronicity involved a band aid. It seems when he returned to the hotel room his leg was bleeding enough to need a big band aid. The hotel gift shop only had small ones. Then he looked in his dop kit and found one very large band aid, perfect for the wound, and for keeping his suit from becoming soiled during the day. He had no idea where the band aid had come from, and he knew he had not put it in his bag.

The funny thing is I remember putting it in his shaving kit. I had been unpacking from our recent move, and for some reason had a large, lone, band aid in my hand. Not knowing what to do with it at that moment, I stuck it in his shaving kit. I have no idea why I did that. I guess it just seemed opportune at the time.

Anyway, he's decided to buy some more big band aids to carry in his kit, just in case!

Grandmother said...

My favorite part of the post was when you said: "I love it when he talks that way." Made me smile.

Sometimes, the Universe just takes us in its hands and reminds us of what we need to know.

Pam said...

Don't you love when that happens!

DJan said...

That is so perfect. And the first three posts I've read this morning are all about synchronicity! Synchronistic in itself!

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? And I'm not even talking yet about the band-aid... I'm talking about the fact that your husband UNDERSTANDS synchronicity - because I am guessing he heard about it and learned about it from you!

Exactly why I believe there are plans for all of us. :)
My mom used to call me when I was at my worst, crying in my dark apartment.
"What is WRONG with you, darling?"
she would say right when I said "Hello?" on the phone. Love is strong and true and can be so incredible.

You have taught him well! Taking care of him even when you aren't aware of it......

I think your subconscious mind told your conscious mind to put the band aide there because your subconscious mind new before your conscious mind that this would be a future need.
I think I read too many books! giggles!!
Happy Solstice!

How fortunate that he has you, and that he understands the beauty of synchronicity!

"Synchronicity happens when God chooses to act anonymously."

Right place; right time. Yup. Natsy's right: organized universe, indeed!

Too bad we don't plug into that Sense more often.

You know how much he needs you, even before the need occurs! He knows it too. =)

Butternut Squash said...

You can anticipate his needs, an absolutely beautiful synchronicity.

ds said...

Synchronicity? Maybe. Wifely intuition? Absolutely. Very cool story.

Marguerite said...

Great synchro story! You two really are soul mates! I always carry all sizes of band aids in my purse!

It is so awesome when things like this happen. I think it happens way more than we realize. :)

Midlife Jobhunter said...

I'm thinking that band-aid giver is worth much more than that "pretty" on the running trail.

Funny how things go.

Linda Pendleton said...

That's wonderful, Nancy. :-)
(sounds like he is really catching on :-) )

Pat said...

Sorry that your husband took a tumble, but glad that you had to foresight to stick that band-aid in his case!

Now - can you tell me the winning lottery numbers? Tee-hee!
