Is a perfect number.
Is the atomic number of nickel.
Is is a magic number.
Is the number of dominoes in a set.
28 minutes is long enough to watch a sitcom (give or take a few commercials).
days is a lunar month.
28 weeks is just over half of a year - long enough for you to forget just how cold (or hot) the opposite season feels.
28 years is long enough to learn what love is. It is long enough to appreciate the little things. It is long enough to realize that achieving your dreams can take work. A lot of work. It is long enough to realize that all that work is worth it.
28. A whole lifetime and the blink of an eye, all at once.
And today? I turn 28.
