Is it a coincidence?
I'm not normally a superstitious person, but events over a period of time have made me rethink my apathy on the subject. Over recent years the number 9 has been rearing its head.
Firstly, my fiancee and I have been dating for 9 years. There is 9 years difference in age between us.
Her mother and father there is 9 years difference, also her grandmother & Grandfather.
When our daughter was born I was 39. When I was born my father was 39 and spookily enough, when my fiancee was born her father was. . . .yes, you guessed it - 39.
My brother and his wife were courting for 9 years and married on the 10th.
We are getting married next year (10th year) on Sept. 9th
The connections do not end there. I am a World War II historian and one of my specialist subjects is Barnes Wallis of the Dam Busters Raid.
Well, my fiancees grandfather used to work with Barnes Wallis at Vickers Armstrong, Weybridge. Also add to the mix my fiancees mother used to work with Elizabeth Wallis (Barnes Wallis's daughter).
Is it an omen? does anyone else have a similar experience or story? Or what do you think?
