Do you know why i’ve kept the bead jar on my desk for nearly 17 years

Florida Hospital Winter Garden
Dropped off the Bead Jar yesterday.


A hospital administrator asked to borrow the bead jar that’s been sitting on my desk for nearly 17 years.

She’s in charge of the Devotional at next week’s Board meeting and she wanted to reference my intentionality as a parent.

There are 57 beads remaining.

i remove one bead from the jar every weekend.

On your 18th birthday, the final bead will be taken out.

Do you know why i thought of this when you were born August 12, 2000?
