Now I know things look a little different here, but those aren’t the things I am seeing. I’m not talking about wallpaper and font or type size and quippy titles. I am talking about numbers. Here is a list of numbers that look just a little differently now that it is February.
13 that’s the age of my oldest son.
2- he’s the second kid out of several.
11.5- his shoe size
5’8″- his height
1- the number of girls he has a crush on
1- the number of girls he gave a handmade card and a candy bar to this week because she had a birthday.
4- his age when he began introducing himself as “a pastor here” at our church.
19- the age he wants to be when he gets married.
6- his football number when he was just a tiny little sprout
1- the number of girls he has asked to a school dance.
0- the number of rejections he has received when inviting a girl to a school dance.
4- the number of inches he has to grow to be as tall as his dad.
2- his average intake of cheeseburgers.
2- the number of times he has shaved.
8- the number of times he has watched Tommy Boy.
1 gazillion- the number of times he has quoted Tommy Boy.
Countless- the number of times he has made my heart leap- good and bad.
I love you my Elijah Daniel.
