My grandmother had two sisters. Two out of those three lovely ladies died on the same exact day of the year in separate years. My great aunt, the third sister, is still with us and is as strong as an ox. But every year when April comes around I am sure she's checking that calendar, and I'm sure when that date passes, she heaves her own sigh of relief.
Naturally, this week after the passing of David Bowie and Alan Rickman, I'm reminded of my grandmother's obsession. Sadly, we've lost too many talented stars. The truth is that there is no magic "three rule" in death or any other matter. But if it is something bad, it makes us feel better to think that after we've reached that number everyone is safe again.
There's no need to fret, though. Good things come in threes, too! The 3 Little Pigs, The 3 Musketeers, Hanson, 3-ringed notebooks, the Wise Men...and awesome trilogies!
My BLUE-LINK series is about to end with the third book, DUSK. (LOL, I caught you all rolling your eyes out there!)
Can you name some more great things that come in threes?
