Synchronicity of the Month

In mid-January I was walking to the store, and I had this thought/feeling that my family and I would be traveling to France, which is something I have wanted to do for many years. Just as I became in touch with that, I heard a mother and father yelling out to their kids as they headed toward the store, and I was quite sure they were speaking in French. Then, when I entered the store, I immediately noticed that the song playing on the overhead speakers was in French! Now how often do you hear French songs with French lyrics playing in grocery stores?

Okay, we live near Boulder, Colorado, and, unfortunately, you just don't hear too many people speaking other languages here. So I just had to verify they were indeed speaking this language, because if so, this was a very strong message, don't you think? So I walked toward the couple, and still wasn't absolutely sure so I flat out asked them if they were speaking French. Yes, they said. They were French-Canadian and had lovely accents. Is this a sign that we're going to France? Don't know how, when, or any of the circumstances, but let's just say that was one enjoyable set of synchronicities, and I'm on the lookout for more.
