numbers tell the story

To be one of the most inept students to ever enter a math class, I'm surprisingly focused on numbers.

First, my birth year: 1955. Also in my family ...
paternal grandmother - 1895
mother - 1925
husband Bill - 1945
son Dan - 1985
So how about a grandchild born in another '5' year, 2015? It could happen!

Next, big family events such as graduations, weddings and babies.
It's been a busy ten years:
Graduations - 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and this Saturday, 2012!
Weddings - 2007 and 2009
Babies - 2010, 2011, 2012

Finally, and this dawned on me as I drifted off to sleep last night, I am blessed by the number 3 right now. For many years, it was 3 boys and 1 girl and I never really thought much about it evening up someday.
But now!
3 sons, 3 daughters, and 3 granddaughters!

This is super amazing to me and there's a decent chance there will be more.
But even if our family stays this size, I am thankful and blessed for the numbers I have:
1 husband and
9 offspring!
