I am a number person.
I have this inane ability to remember numbers when I cannot even remember my own name
Drivers License number.
My husband’s social security number.
My son’s social security number.
I play the same lottery numbers because I know that one of these days, that magic lottery number picking machine is gonna choose them.
Ya’ gotta believe. 🙂
My lucky number is 7.
It is kinda amazing how much the number 7 plays a role in my life.
I was born in the 7th month in the 7th hour, for example.
There are seven of us in my immediate family of my husband and I and my son and his family.
I could go on and on.
Numerology, I think they call it.
I have no idea what numerology is or how it works. In fact, its kinda strange that I have a fascination of numbers when I can hardly balance my own checkbook.
I can conjugate a sentence in a New York minute.
Give me an adverb and pronoun and I will raise you one dangling preposition. 🙂
I love reading and books and I love whacky words. (remember my whacky word post?) So you would think it would be natural that I have a love of letters. (which I do. Also.) 🙂
But numbers… oh those sweet numbers.
I think its because numbers represent life.
12-23-59. When my loving and amazing parents were married.
07-17-64. When I was born.
08-04-84. When I gave birth to my precious son.
06-20-1992. When I married the love of my life in the most beautiful, intimate ceremony at 7pm and my 7-year old son gave me away. (see there’s my lucky number again)
12-31-2005. When my sweet Cole Man was born, at 4:37pm.
02-18-2008. When my son and my darling daughter-in-law was married.
10-29-2009. My sweet Roo’s birthday.
5-19-2012. Miss C’s date of birth.
Numbers bind us. “I take thee to be my lawfully wedded husband…”
Numbers encourage us. “Yay – I lost FIVE pounds this week!”
Numbers depress us. “Oh, wow…did I really gain that much weight back?”
Numbers give us life. “Today, my granddaughter came into this world.”
… and numbers represent who we are. “I was born the 7th month of the year, July. I am a Cancer.”
Numbers are all around us. So it’s no wonder we have a fascination with them.
What is your favorite number? Do you have one?
Have you ever given it any thought if there is a reoccurring number in your life?
Right at this moment… my fave number is 6,037.
(see there is that #7 again!)
Because that is how many Everyday Friends have joined me here so far on this blogging journey as I talk about some of the sillier things in my life that cross my mind… and cross this keyboard.
Such as my fascination with numbers. Who knew? 🙂
