A song has been going through my head lately and it definitely got me to thinking. How do you measure a year?
If I measured it in cups of tea–that would probably be at least 500 cups—who am I kidding? 730 is more accurate.
If I measured a year in blog posts it would be about 300 give or take a few.
If I measured a year in date nights with the hubby it would number between 52 and 100.
If I measured a year in treats given to our cats, Buddy and Holly, it would be a million, most likely. They are pretty spoiled, after all.
If I measured a year in happy moments it would be impossible to count.
The one thing that I do know is that my years are measured by my relationships and friendships that span the United States and beyond. I am blessed beyond belief and can not put a measurement to those at all.
So for today I choose to celebrate my 525,600 minutes in love!
How about you? How would you measure your 525,600 minutes?

525,600 minutes! 525,000 journeys to plan. 525,600 minutes – how can you measure the life of a woman or man?
In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried. In bridges he burned, or
the way that she died.
