In case I had any questions that Jason wasn't Mr. Right, I now can't deny it. We were totally meant to be. And now I have proof.
Good thing......because we have a baby and all.
Today I was going through Macy's room and I came across a gift that was given to my mom when I was a baby almost 30 years ago. The gift was from my Uncle Paul and Aunt Linda from Ohio and it was a bonnet that was to be used at my baptism and then later at my wedding as a handkerchief.
Well, it wasn't wasn't used for either. Apparently my mom misplaced it and didn't find it until last December when I was about to deliver Macy. So she gave it to me for my baby. Probably so I can misplace it and give it to Macy on the eve of her baby's birth.......gotta keep the tradition alive.
Anyway, I found the box and I was showing Macy (you know, because I was running out of stuff to entertain her with so I made a game up out of cleaning out her closet. Hey, I am desperate, and there are only so many things to keep a 6 month old entertained all day). The lettering on the box is kinda hard to make out......well, because it's been 30 years......see for yourself:
Upon closer inspection, something caught my eye. Something significant:
This handkerchief was made in Derry, New Hampshire. That's the small town that my husband was born in. I had to Google it, but in 2009 Derry's population was only 22,000 people.
Kinda bizarre right?! So either this is a HUGE coincidence or it's a sign that Jason and I were meant to be together and have a baby. Ummm, I don't know about you but I think this TOTALLY means we're soul mates!
And I will leave you with a picture of the child that was meant to be. Isn't she just precious?
Note: I am completely kidding with all of this. Honestly, I don't need a handkerchief to validate my marriage. But it does help.......kidding again.
