11:11 … Just another time of day?

My husband has always made verbal note to those around when he has noticed the clock reading 11:11. When our grandson was born 11/2011 at 11:11pm, my husband thought that was the greatest moment possible. For me, I thought it was pretty interesting but otherwise I saw no more significance in the moment than the awesome fact that we had our very first grandchild!

My daughter-in-law’s delivery nurse (and a previous co-worker of mine) is on my facebook friend’s list. She often posts a wish or a prayer at 11:11 … when she just happens to be online.

While these two thoughts above really have nothing to do one with the other, they have made me more mindful of the time 11:11. I have never questioned my husband on his theories behind that specific number and I do not know my friend’s reasoning for her daily “wish.” So, I went on a little quest for information online. I wanted to know what that number means.

There appear to be many theories out there as to the significance of the time 11:11. Some were way over my head! One fact I found that is easy for us all to relate to is that it is the only time on a 12 hour clock that you will see all the numbers on the clock will read the same.

One of my favorites and the one that is probably closest to my personality is no matter what your theory, belief or even non-belief about the number’s meaning, it is a good time to stop and reflect on where you are at and what you are doing and know that it is exactly where you are supposed to be. On the days that I actually happen to stop at the exact time 11:11 to look at the clock, I say “Thank you, God!” I am truly thankful for all that I am (flaws & all) and for all that He has given me.

What does 11:11 mean to you? Is it just another time of day?


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.

  1. This post makes me smile. I have a personal belief on it and it happens to be a topic I plan to write a post about on my blog. I was excited to see your post on the same. 🙂
