We are 4 days into May. 4 days into the 5th month. Where has the time gone?

My favorite things about May:

  1. My birthday is this month. MY birthday. It’s the one day a year I get to be specialer than anyone else. Yes, I know that I’m of an age where birthdays should mean less, but guess what? They DON’T!
  2. The days become warmer, the trees become more beautiful, flowers bloom. The earth comes alive again.
  3. Mother’s day. I mean, come on. Every day should be Mother’s day. Think about all the good things Mom has done for you! (Or, for those of you with a less-than-ideal mother experience, a mother-figure). My mother deserves a Mother’s day EVERY day. But, then again, my mother is my hero.
  4. Fresh air! The windows come open. The winter musties get swept out with a good breeze. The screen door replaces the winter storm door.
  5. The cold/warm clothing swap-out. All those warm, winter clothes of which you have become so tired, get put away in favor of the lighter, brighter spring/summer clothing and open-toed shoes. EVERYTHING is “lighter”.

I hope you love May as much as I do. And think of it…if your birthday is in November, May is your 1/2 birthday month. So celebrate with me.
