Earning Digits

by good2begone


Numbers are intertwined into every facet of our lives.

It would be hard to count without them.

As children, our first conquering of numbers is learning to count to….

10

If you think about it, like I have, the number 10 is quite an iconic figure in the realm of numbers.

And my first and favorite tattoo.

Hmm…10 is a pretty big deal.

The number 10 is also known as a milestone for achievement.

Doing anything for 10 continuos years is something worth celebrating.

Today, May 8, 2014, marks 10 years of sobriety for my wife.

She blogs as foreverpaused.

I am her proud husband.

I am so proud of her that I am coming back into town, a day early, to surprise her on this momentous day.

I even contacted her favorite artist, PINK, and had her send a congratulatory picture to mark the occasion….

She’s da bomb.

My wife…..not PINK.

She has maintained her sobriety through every conceivable up and down life could possibly throw her way…

Even being married to me for over 5 of those 10 years.

AND I AM HANDFUL!

10

For a number of reasons, it’s a great digit.

Today, it’s special for 1 reason.
