I guess I find it curious while I read columns regarding getting married on 8/8/08. As if getting married on this day will make it "more" special or give you "luck"...?
As I continue to watch I suppose my perspective is different. Brides/Grooms, people, human beings are always looking to leave their mark, kind of like "blogging". Everyone wants something special, unique and different
After being married 18 years, I realize the "special" dates are things that surprise you. That is what makes them special. You don't have control over the day your son was born...2/4/93 or 5/25/95. How about the day that you closed on your first home 6/13/95. Should I have closed on 5/5/05 ?
These are the dates that are special to me because they caught me by surprise. The date of the month is not special, what happened on the day is special. It definitely changed from the way I intended on spending the day. I believe it left a wonderful mark on my calendar of life.
In a world of trying to "make" things special I guess we sometimes loose perspective of what is special. We also end up creating things that we become victims of... like brides getting married on 6/6/06.
