If I said this was an easy challenge, I'd be lying through my teeth. Each day as I was driving around, I would be looking for numbers. Nothing jumped out at me. Sure I saw numbers just nothing that screamed at me!
Last night I was ready to write Karen and Carly to tell them I wouldn't be participating. No inspiration - none, zip, nada.
However, the inspiration hit me this evening as I was searching through my closet for something unrelated to the entry, I saw this number and it immediately made me smile.
I remember sitting and watching my youngest son play football on Friday nights for his high school. While I was never a fan of football before, I didn't miss a game. He played both offence and defense, meaning he NEVER left the field! The poor kid would be so exhausted afterwards. Which meant a peaceful quiet evening for me! :-)
While putting together the entry this evening and with thoughts of my youngest son, it hit me, I have a favorite number this month - 18. That's the day my son returns home from deployment, it's the day I get to hear his voice again and know he is safe on US soil!
All that time I spent looking for numbers OUT THERE, waiting for something to 'scream' at me to photograph them and all the time the numbers were quietly waiting for me here in my home. :-)
