The Providence of Coincidence

Hi friends! I just wanted to share a little story with you all :)

Last week, I walked into cvs which is a pharmacy/convenience stop and as I was checking out the cashier asked me if I had a cvs card. I looked at the cashier and told him I didn't and as I opened my wallet he said "Oh you do have a cvs card, it's right there!" I apologized to him and proceeded to explain that I have a brain injury and forget things sometimes-to which he responded- "Hey, so does my sister! She got into a car accident and has a tbi!" He gave me her phone number, I called her, and we're meeting together for coffee on Friday. The providence of coincidence... :)

How fantastic, some people would just have looked, been embarrassed and ignored it. Hope its the start of a lovely friendship, where you can both help and support each other.

Very best wishes, Molly

I loveeee Coffee! But being middle eastern, I grew up on Chai tea so I'll always be a tea girl :) If I ever visit the uk we can grab a chai or coffee together!

I think that's great ! It's hard for someone to really know what it feels like or explain to someone what feels like in your head. I think it's great! Enjoy the coffee and hope it turns out to be a nice friendship for both of you:) Niyani

Thanks Cat! :) We went to coffee and she was so sweet! I've never had someone relate to me so much. She was saying everything I try so desperately to explain to everyone else. It's a friendship that is definitely continuing :) We're going to meet together every week!
