- Wedding: August 2011
I know that in a lot of cultures dates/numbers mean a lot. I’m not strongly connected to any belief about numbers, but within the past several months dates have been significant in my life.
My 28th birthday was this past October 5th, and I got engaged that weekend. I tried calling my dad to tell him, but I could never get through. On Tuesday 10/5 I received a call that my dad had passed away and his body had just been found (in his home by a friend). He may have passed away a few days before 10/5, but 10/5/10 is the death date. My birthday.
This past Saturday I ordered my wedding dress, and yesterday the shop owner left a message for me telling me when the dress is slated to come in. It’s May 25th, my dad’s birthday. I got chills when I listened to her message. I know that my dad is still around, with me in spirit. I just feel that the fact that my dress is coming in on his birthday is confirmation that I have his blessing on my wedding & that he knows I’m getting married even though I was never able to tell him.
