Welcome to May

There are things about Winter that I like. I love the snow, I love Christmas. But, by the time Spring gets here, I am ready for the change. For the warmer weather, for things to turn green, for sunny days and blue skies.

And now?

I am ready to say goodbye to April. April is usually the beginning of the real spring weather around here -- short sleeves, light jackets, sometimes even shorts. The sun shines, the sky is blue and the flowers begin to bloom.

But this April? Has been rainy and gray, which actually seems almost fitting, because it has also been filled with sadness. I have spent too much time at funerals, too much time saying goodbye. And I? Am tired.

Grief is exhausting.

So now May? May is a second chance for spring to come. To fill the days with sunshine and blue skies. And hope...May is also full of hope...

Love the pic! What do you set your camera on to get the backround blury like that? I've always used a point and shot, but since my son broke my camera I would really like to get one that I have more control over. What camera are you using? thanks

I hope May bring you more peace, I take a little over here as well. It seem like April was a tough month for a lot of people. I like how you can look to the future for better times. You have an awesome spirit!
