Occurrence

When talking about thoughts, it seems more accurate to say, “something occurred to me,”  than to say “I just thought of something”.  Is it I that creates the thought, or do I just observe the thought when it occurs?

It occurred to me that this doesn’t only apply to thoughts.  For instance, I could just as well say,  ”Something occurred to me… a wife and daughter, in that order”. These things happen.
