Magic number 7

I believe in the cycle of life. That there is a period of time before a thing starts over. Seven digits in a local phone number.  7 months of life before a tree hibernates through the winter. A  7 year itch.  God created the earth in 7 days. 7 habits of highly successful people, and so on.

I am reminded of the movie “Seven Pounds” starring Will Smith.  How his character, Ben, would change the lives of 7 people.  How beautiful, how reassuring it would be if we truly could clock our life. So precise to know exactly the moment that it all would end; but we can’t and we don’t.

Acknowledging that I have reasons to be grateful, gave me a moment of happiness today.

So for now, I count my blessings, one at a time.
