GOOD MORNING WORLD
Today is my birthday! I just checked my facebook page to find a number of birthday greetings (our #1 daughter being the first) and it warmed my heart to see so many people cared to take the time to write a birthday greeting. I am humbled.
Yesterday the mail contained multiple cards. Saturdays mail even had two cards from the same person one of which is responsible for the title of this post. The card simply said “Birthday Queen” with a crown on the front. Inside it said, “Happy Birthday, Your Royal Wonderfulness.” Now this sweet person (daughter #2) knows me well!!! In fact I am wearing my “Queen of Absolutely Everything” shirt today as it is my birthday and I am the Queen of this day in this house today!!!
My boyfriend greeted me first thing with a “Happy Birthday”. As he left he asked about dinner. It is only two of us this year and he has scouts tonight so thinking take out Chinese will be on tap – hooray!!! Otherwise no big deal. The gift I wanted has arrived and is waiting for unpacking. A new sewing machine may be nothing to some – for me I am very excited and have projects already lined up to run through the stitches it promises.
Are any of you wondering why the word “Numbers” is in the title? If you are not that is okay. The number issue is something I do not know what to do about. It is just a tantalizing thought that I am about to share. Perhaps it means real luck. Perhaps it is simply 2 numbers that worked out this way. It has been fascinating me since I discovered it.
I googled “what do numbers mean” and the definition popped up of course. This was followed by “Numbers in the Bible”, “Spiritual meaning of numbers”, “Repeating and Recurring Numbers” “Angel Numbers” and “Numbers and their Meaning”. I looked further into the last one and was greeted with the Fibonacci Number and more. This article then started going through every single number to 13 and then did some double digits to 99. The two numbers I am concerned with were not mentioned.
So here is the most interesting thing about this day and year. Can someone tell me what it means?
Today I turn 68. To me that is a great number as psychologically for most of my life I could not envision life after 35 as that is the age my mother died. Despite having aunts who lived longer this is a real issue in girls who lose their mothers at a young age. Needless to say I worked through it and moved on. I was born in 1947. That is the other number, 47. So I am dealing with two numbers 68 and 47.
Now here is the punch line.
I was married in 1968 and this year we will celebrate 47 years. See it? 68 and 47 again. What are the chances of this happening I wonder? I am taking it as lucky and a blessing and I WILL buy a lottery ticket today!!!
Off to make my birthday a fun day and may just take the day off and read or watch a movie. It’s my party and I can do what I want to right???
Thank you to all who sent a card or message via email or facebook. You are my blessings.
