friendly siren

Ivy at the waterpark

At the waterpark, a little girl swam up to me in the basketball pool and said, "I remember you. You were very nice and helped me out once. It's been years since we were last together."


I remember her exact words because they were so sharp they made a mark and I immediately turned to repeat it to Jeff. We remarked how she was kind of a fast-forwarded version of Ivy, someday.


She was seven, and her name was Ellie. And she stayed by me a long time, smiling and acting like we were friends. I even watched her when her mom went to get an iced coffee. I swear we never met before but something about it felt so right and okay.

  2. That IS weird. Maybe one of her past lives was making a brief appearance?

  3. Wow. This sort of thing happened to me at the soccer field one day. The little girl didn't say so much but she would NOT leave my side, even when here mother urged her to. I know I did not know this girl (and we are not from here so...) but it was like so strange and surreal but she said she loved me and everything. Her Mom was not threatened, just a little freaked out (we both were!) Anyway, I've not seen her again. Sometimes I wonder if God doesn't just send little angels into our lives, you know?

  5. Sweet little girl. It's freaky and sweet at the same time when kids do that.
