What does this mean?

OK, this is going to sound weird, but it'll just have to, because this is what happened.   About a week ago on a Thursday Stafan was home sick from school.   He wanted to go to school, but I wouldn't let him.  He didn't have a temperature, but the night before it was 100.1.   Since, I have a lot of kids, 10 and soon 12, when I just have one with me I usually try and spoil them.  I know the number of kids makes me weird all by itself, but remember I'm adopting orphans not popping them out. : - )  Anyway,  since I just had Stafan, I let him go to the candy shop and pick out a bag of the mix 'n match.  I also let him have anything he wanted for lunch, which meant Panda Expres, because that is what all the kids ALWAYS pick.  That's not the weird part of my story though.

The weird part is coming, but first I have to explain some things about me and my sister, Becki.  If Becki or I say something to our kids--for example, if I am arguing with my kids and I say, "Aunt Becki thinks so too" or "Aunt Becki does the same with her kids"--they will answer,  "Well, you're the same people so it doesn't count!!"  Back to the my story.   I had a 40% off coupon at Gap Thursday so I just had to go there sick or no sick kid.  Since I had Stafan I didn't stay very long.  I got what I wanted and we left the store happy.  As Stafan and I were walking down the main aisle of the mall about a store past Gap, I heard someone faintly but very clearly say, "Sammy."  I actually turned around and looked, but I only saw three teenager looking girls, so Stafan and I kept going and went to the parking garage.  As we were walking through the parking garage, I thought I saw my sister's car and asked Stafan if it was Aunt Becki's car.  He didn't think so, but I was pretty sure it was, because of her special plates and her fish sign. Also, I figured she probably had the same Gap coupon and was making a mall run on her lunch hour.  So,  Saturday morning I asked my sister, "Were you at the mall Thursday?"  She said, "Yes and Megan (the sales girl at Gap--trust me we know the sales girls at the mall) said I had just missed you by about 10 minutes."  So,  I told Becki, "Oh, I heard someone say "Sammy" right after I left the store."  She said, " I didn't see you, but I thought I heard someone say Becki."  I then asked if she heard it in the parking garage, because I thought maybe she heard me talking to Stafan about her car.  She said "No, it was right before I went into Gap and I even turned around in the hall and looked behind me."  I had not told her that I too had turned around and looked.   The mall was pretty dead so when you turned around you would have seen if anyone was there. 

When I think about this, it gives me goosebumps.  I think it has to mean something.  Nothing like this has ever happened to us before.  Growing up my mom was very against things like Ouija boards and anything that goes along with it, so I've never gone near things like that and never will!  To me what happened must have come from God or an angel.   

'Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.' 
Leviticus 19:31

They Minister to the Needs of Believers: Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
Hebrews 1:14 
The question is why?  One thought I've had is that both my sister and I had been praying especially hard all that week.  We have a friend who has been going through an extremely hard time.  Could God be telling Becki and me something about our relationship with each other?  Or could this have happened so that I would write about it and you, whoever you are, would read about it and think about how God is real and can speak to us if we open our hearts to listen?
