Twins run in our family. One of my sisters sent me this picture from her kitchen yesterday. I texted back, I had one about two months ago. This is the same sister who got a twin rose bloom at her home the day our dad, also a twin, passed away. The twin rose bloomed near the place where our dad sat on the front porch visiting with his twin during his bout with cancer.
The odds of a double yolk are about one in a thousand. In my lifetime, I've only seen a twin rose bloom from a single bud one time and that was the day our dad left this world. Are all these twins a coincidence? Maybe. Is the timing of the double rose blooming next to my dad's favorite hangout spot on the day of his death a coincidence? Maybe. For me and my family, these twin appearances are a double blessing that remind us of our dad.
Have you ever seen a double rose or broken open a twin yolk? Are there twins in your family? Please share your comments below.
