When I started this blog almost 4 years ago, I had no idea where it might take me. I certainly had no idea I'd ever see this on the dashboard:
At this rate, by next week there will probably be a large (and largely unbelievable) 2-with-a-bunch-of-zeroes-behind-it on my Blogger screen.
Another important number looming in the Micawber household: 55. This month Mr. M will hit the speed limit of birthdays. He plans to celebrate by shaving off his winter beard. (As his beard has gone mostly grey, this will immediately knock ten years off his appearance - a smart way to take the sting out of getting older.)
Big numbers aren't the only noteworthy ones. 3 years ago this month my mom passed from this earthly life to her new forever life. I can't imagine what she is seeing or hearing, but someday I'll find out. And I'll get to hug her again.
There's something about anniversaries, about the numbers both big and small with which we mark the events of life, that compels emotion in the human heart: whether it be awe, excitement, wistfulness, or merely surprise that such a thing should be, that so much time should have gone by, that so much should have happened almost without our being aware of it. My heart is full of all of these this February.

In March, this blog will turn 4. Time to start planning a giveaway, I think. :)
Are there any important numbers in your life this month?
