I'm a numbers girl

I heart math.

You would never guess it now. But I actually used to be really great at numbers. Like calculus great.

Now I’m literally grateful I can multiply by 10’s in my head.

But for some reason, I still have this knack for numbers when it comes to dates and times. I can clearly remember milestones big or small.

April 21, 2003: I moved into my first house.

March 7, 2008: Amara received her first phone call.

December 4, 2009: We lost my Mom.

And today, today is an ordinary Monday for most. For my friend Danielle, it’s a fabulous one because it’s her birthday. For me, it’s another one of those days that I can remember so vividly but this time I want to shut it out from my memory. I want it to stay as part of the past but know it will always be a part of me. It made me who I am today. Hopefully that’s a stronger person.

I don’t think anyone realizes the significance of today. And that’s ok.

I’ll just go on crunching numbers the way I do. That’s who I am.
