A funny Thing Fate/Life Is and Prayers Needed Please.

So I get an email from a lady saying she came across my blog while searching for the NKOTB song line up for their concert.  This was nothing out of the ordinary as I often have fellow NKOTB freaks fans contact me when coming across my blog.  So she and I started conversating and it goes as follows:

Her:  “I just wanted to let you know I came across your blog while searching for NKOTB song line up and I feel connected to you.  We both love NKOTB, Jon is our favorite and we were both at the Dallas Show.  I was in front row there (I am at this point green with envy).  I noticed you are going to the Tulsa concert as well and one of my friends and I are in the same section (F3) as you are.  Are you going on the Cruise?”

Me: “No unfortunately I am not going on the cruise it was a bit too costly for me but I wish I were.  How funny that we were both at Dallas and are in the same section at Tulsa.  You can see my picture so if you see me you will know who I am.  This is crazy.”

Her: “Yeah if I would have thought about it I wouldn’t have put the cruise on the credit card but I am excited to be going (I am ready to jump through the email and steal her identity at this point, hmmm wonder if she can stow me away).  Yeah me and 3 of my girlfriends are going two of us are in F3 and the other two in F7.”

Me:  “This is so ironic.  Yeah I am already planning to map out how to get to the piano when I get there.  Well obviously we will see each other at some point I just won’t know who you are”

Her:  “Well we are in seats K13 and K14, so maybe we will be sitting near each other”

At this point I seriously about choked on my drink.  Why You ask?????  I AM IN SEAT K12!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Holy crap I am going to be sitting right next to this girl who I have more than likely crossed paths with before, this is the strangest thing that has ever happened to me.  So I emailed her back pretty much freaking out like I did in the post just now.  So in my opinion obviously our paths are supposed to cross for some reason either that or this is seriously just a freak incident.  Oh and she is from Oklahoma, I would really haved been weirded out if she lived around here.  

So girl that I have never met that I will be sitting next to at the NKOTB concert I look forward to meeting you!

Now onto some seriousness:

I must once again ask for prayers for my grandfather, he too has had cancer found so along with my mother and my aunt please keep my grandfather in your prayers.  I am freaking out I mean really what the heck is going on it’s like all of the sudden cancer is popping up in everyone I love.  I will admit I question God quite often asking why is this happening but then I just pray that he will heal them all and make them cancer free. Thanks so much for your continuing prayers for my family  I really appreciate it.

    Have fun at the concert, that’s so funny!

    I’m sorry that your family is having such a rough time right now. I lost my grandmother 10 years ago to cancer and it was such a hard time for all of us. I hope and pray that you don’t endure that and everyone comes through okay.

    I too love NKOTB. Have since I was little. I remember in high school still listening to them and Debbie Gibson. I even watched all of their VHS tapes from concerts. That is so cool that you will be sitting next to that lady.

    Now then, you have my prayers. I have an Aunt with cancer. She has a type of cancer they can do nothing about. It’s in her pancreas and has spread. I will add all of your family to my prayer list.
