I also love numbers. Different numbers have different significance to me. Some are common representations, like the three representing the trinity or nine representing an ending. Other numbers, like the number four, may be less common.
For me, the number four represents family and love. It represents the sum of our parts making us stronger. It represents being and giving love.
"May the fourth be with you" is a fun pun on a Star Wars quote. Yet it has an even stronger translation when given what four represents to me. May love be with you. May the strength of the sum of us be with you. May family be with you.
My dad often uses four fingers to say "I love you too". Standing at the door as family drives away; he doesn't blow kisses, he holds up those four fingers. There is a nice, solid strength in it.
Today I genuinely wish the fourth to be with you. I hope the power of four, the power of love and connection, is with you all day.
I'm grateful for fun "holidays" like today. I'm grateful for all the nerds out there like me. I'm grateful to wear the word proudly and I'm grateful to be married to someone who does the same. I'm grateful for the number four and all it represents for me. I'm grateful to say "may the fourth be with you" and have that blessing mean so much more than the humor. I'm grateful for a new day and a playful start.
Who can you offer "the fourth" to today? What does the number four represent in your life?
May the fourth be with all of us today. May love and kindness flow easily and may we be one family. Have a beautiful day!
