Sometimes, things happen with such remarkable coincidences, there is no way it can just be due to chance…
Last week, I was on my work Facebook account, and noticed I had a message. Being I never use that account, nor people message me, I figured it was spam. I opened the message, and it read:
Hello jacqueline : ) sorry but i am searching for a jacqueline who has made the page “coniffidence” .are you that one?:) it’s really important because i have one question about your tattoo… Which font is it?
Because i wanna make also a tattoo with this font if i can but than i have to know the name of the font for the other letters. The page calls coniffdence. Please give me an answer i would be very happy : )
To which I replied:
Hi, Yes, I am the Coniffdence blogger : )
Which tattoo are you referring to?
The tattoo “Confidence”
I sent her the information she requested, and added her as a friend. I was looking at her information, and noticed:
SHE HAS THE EXACT SAME BIRTHDAY AS JENNIFER.
Same month, same day, same year.
I was speechless. Stunned.
We continued our conversation, and I mentioned to her that she had the same birthday as my late sister, and why I got a “confidence” tattoo. She answered:
oooh thank you so much !!! : ) : )
really?oh thats crazy : ) i want to have ”CONFIDENTIA” on my arm because it means selfconfidence and there is also a whole story behind : )
Originally, I shared with her the information about my confidence tattoo. She message me back asking for the one that Nif got.
I think it is a wonderful and beautiful thing that a complete stranger will be getting a “CONFIDENTIA” tattoo, in the same font as Jen, who has the same birthday as Jen.
Now, I am not good at math, but I wanted to see what the probably of her having the same birthday as Jen was. I tried to figure it out myself, but that just turned into a math-mess. I found this great explanation on the probability of a group of people, where two of them have the same birthday. (That only accounts for same month and same day. Jen and my new friend also share the same year).
I was so excited, I couldn’t wait to tell my Mom and Dad.
If you ask me, there was devine intervention involved in this set up ❤
