Life’s Numbers


I was 13 the day my mom slipped and crushed her ankle, changing our lives forever, although, I hadn’t realized it at the time. I was 31 the day she died, also changing our lives forever, only I knew it then.

I’m not sure when I started noticing numbers with specific patterns in my life, but I know I have been noticing since I was a child. For instance, I was 8-years-old when my grandmother died. She passed away on September 27th, which was my mom’s birth month, and my aunt’s birth date (May 27th.) My birthday is November 12th, Amanda’s is on the 21st of February. The same numbers, only reversed. The 21st of November (My birth month, her date,) was the day Neil and I started dating. Mine and Christen’s birthdays are exactly 6 months and 6 days apart.

I don’t know that this means anything, and I know I keep saying I’m a words person, yet here I am again, talking about numbers, but I find it very interesting. When I meet new people and learn when their birthdays, anniversaries, or any other significant dates are, I find myself running through my significant life numbers to see if there is any correlation.

Do any of you notice certain patterns with numbers, or am I just crazy? Maybe I’m just crazy, regardless.


Love & life lessons,

  1. Well if you are crazy so am I. For me the numbers 3, 11, and 28 are significant. My eldest sister was 11 when I was born. I was 11 when her first son was born. He was 11 when my daughter was born. I was born on the 28th, my mom died when I was 28, my mother in law died when hubby and I were married 28 years….etc. I don’t really know if it all means anything but it is interesting.

    No one ever is crazy for noticing patterns like these. Who knows, the universe holds a lot of secrets. This isn’t my first time reading number patterns but I am fascinated every time I do. If there is anything that I would describe this universe, it would be possibilities. A cradle of infinite possibilities, one just have to open their minds. And it is cool how you pay attention to the signs and patterns.

  4. I’m writing down significant dates right now. So many are the same. It Can’t all be a coincidence.

    Yes, you are crazy! And it would appear you have a thing about numbers too. 😁 I won’t go as far as saying the numbers thing is crazy, but I would argue that given a large enough set of numbers, you can find correlations that are coincidental and unrelated. I think sometimes we see what we want to see. But, that’s just me. A long as you are not making life decisions based on this numerological theory, it’s all good.

    Who knows, maybe you ARE a numbers person…and a writer words person. Who says you have to pick? Maybe those two wonderful skills go hand in hand for you? You should be proud πŸ™‚

    You’re not crazy. I’ve noticed certain number patterns, too. While I’m grateful I have a unique birthday, if I’d been born just one day later, it would have been all eights in a row (8/8/88). The numbers 7, 8, and 15 have always been significant to me. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that both my parents and Al’s parents were married in 1982, just in different months. I was born 15 weeks early. Al and I got married on November 14, 2015. I’m going to be paying closer attention now!

    OMG dear Kristian! We are totally Soul Sisters even in this numbers department. I definitely don’t espouse numerology or anything of that sort, but I believe there is beauty and wisdom in recognizing the patterns around us …. for even creation works with God-given order and seasons. β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•
