This is an example of the Universe sending a sign of something which will manifest, IFF OUR CURRENT ENERGIES AND FOCUS STAY THE SAME. So if the Universe sends you the experience of someone else getting what you desire, it doesn't mean that it's rubbing your nose in it, it means that you should get excited because the same thing is on its way to you.
Imagine if you had gone to Disney World, spent up all the money, and then wasn't in a position to handle the funeral (my condolences btw) or properly pay your taxes. I believe in synchronicity and that everything has its "season." Instead of worrying over it, simply say "Things will fall into place exactly as it should," smile and move forward. Sometimes it's hard to see past our own noses in a given moment, but know that it'll fall into place as it should.
Just imagine if our desire was to be thrown into the ocean, but we didn't know how to swim. We would drown in our desire. However, through other experiences and circumstances, the universe lines up things that allow us to grow/expand and shift into other situations to make our desire possible, but also maintainable. As they say, God doesn't give us more than we're capable of handling; we'll certainly get plenty of experiences to expand our capability of handling more.
So with that being said, and despite how this circumstance feels, everything is happening as it should for you. In this arc of a story alone, there are many obvious blessings that you have in your life. Try not to stress out too much over this, and as the time draws near, I'm positive that something will fall into place for you all.
