The title to this post could sound sort of deep.
or have some sort of theological twang to it.....
....depending on your given state of mind at the moment, I suppose.
But to me...right now....it sounds like a bunch of math.
I was inspired by a friend and fellow blogger, Jody, about the importance of each and every day we have with our kids.
And not to let any of them just slip away.
I'm a visual-type.
So this little mathy-crafty thing is a helpful reminder to me that the days that I have with my kids are numbered.
In each vase, there are beads that total the number of days from TODAY until each of the kids' 18th birthday.
At the end of each day, I will take one out of each vase.
Here's the breakdown.
(not sure if you can tell from the pic, but i had to start using smaller beads in the younger 2 so i could fit them all in)
I used a calculator and calendars and counted out beads for this.
I'm not a math person or a craft person.
But I'm totally in love with these kids and I don't want to waste even a single bead.
That ends this special deep-prophetic-theological-math-craft-story......
