What Do Numbers Means?

Certain numbers mean certain things to certain people.  Almost everyone has a special number or numbers that takes on a special meanings to them.  My special or favorite number was the number 10.  That is the number that I would always try to get for my baseball uniform number.

Here are four more of my favorite numbers, 112573, 32378, 7983, 72112!  I will tell you that my very least favorite number is 123095. Wow you say, those are really big numbers!  How could a numbers that are 4, 5, and 6 digits long be some of you favorite numbers?  I will explain.

112573 is the birth date of my first born son, Jason.  It might be more recognizable as 11/25/73.  That day was to forever change the life of one young 22 year old  USAF 2nd Lt.  I will never forget that Sunday afternoon when I became a father for the very first time!  It was a very joyous occasion!  It REALLY did change my life forever!

32378, you guessed it, is the birthdate of my second son, Jeremy.  Again it is more recognizable as 3/23/78.  It was another momentous occasion for a somewhat older and more experienced USAF Captain.   Because Jeremy was a scheduled C-section birth, we picked out his birthdate from the dates offered for that surgery, very cool!  Not many parents get to do that!

7983 is a number that carries a meaning that only one other person in this whole world holds equally dear!  That person is my best friend, my soul-mate, the same person that is mysteriously missing for the last six weeks, Karen!

72112 is a number that will always have a very special place in my heart.  You see that number is more recognizable as 7/21/12.  Those numbers represent the birth date of my Dad, Archie Wilson Hammack!  He was a very simple country-boy.  Dad had a work ethic unlike most of us today.  He got up every morning and went to work, no matter what!  He worked hard all of his life to provide a living for his family.  My Dad loved to pull practical jokes on people, was a disciplinarian, but mellowed in his old age, was a very proud father, but mostly he was my best friend as I grew older.

He was my role model.  Although he only got through the 6th grade because he had to help support his family, he was a wise man, nonetheless!  Now, even more in death, I learn from Archie Wilson Hammack!  When confronted with some types of problems to solve, I find myself thinking what would Dad do?  Or how would Dad handle this situation?  That is when I realize just how much I still miss my Dad,  Archie Wilson Hammack!

Today would be Dad’s 97th birthday!

123095 are the group of  numbers that are my absolutely least favorite!  Better read 12/30/95.  That is the date that God decided he needed Dad more than we needed Dad on Earth! 

I have to respect God’s decision, but I really wished that he had consulted me first!

My Dad, Archie Wilson Hammack  7/12/12—–12/30/95!

HAPPY BIRTDAY, DAD!
