Carolsdaughter Posted January 31, 2005 Share Posted January 31, 2005 Have anyone who has lost a loved one been somewhere where they saw some who looked very much like the loved one they had lost? This happened to me this weekend. I was at Costco with my husband and son. We had just grabbed a hotdog and drink and sat down. It was Saturday, and Costco was very busy. I had seen a woman who looked very much like my mom and she was buzzing around the store and an electric shopping cart with her husband in tow. I looked at her without starring and thought gee, she sure reminds me of my mom. Later while we ate our hotdogs, she was sitting in her shopping cart right in front of us and I said to my husband, "Do you ever see anybody who reminds you of mom?" He said yes, right in front of you. I just watched that lady while I ate. She was playing with her teeth and she didn't even notice me watching her. Some of her friends came by and she talked to them and still she reminded me of mom in how cute she was. When my husband had finished eating he asked me if I was ready to go and I said, "No, I can't leave her" with a crack in my voice. A few minutes I said "I am ready" and stood to throw away the garbage. As I walked past her, she looked right at me and I smiled at her. I threw away the garbage and after I walked past her I said goodbye with out looking back. I smiled at my son and husband and my son said "did you just say good-bye to her?" I just kept walking and said "Yes, I did." It sounds a bit kooky I know but I couldn't help myself. I think it would have been strange if I had actually said something to her besides a smile to a stranger. Has this happened to anyone else before?
