Over the years, May has become one of my favorite months of the year. It’s a season of new beginnings and celebrations. Even though spring officially starts in March, you normally do not notice the season change until May. Here are a few reasons why I love the Month of May so much.
April Showers brings May Flowers… There is something about this saying that has always brought me a sense of hope and happiness. I am not a big fan of the colder season and I look forward to spring. However, where I’m from, it tends to rain a lot in the month of April and the weather has a huge effect on one’s emotions. But once the rain stop and the flowers begin to blossom, I begin to appreciate the rain. Because without it the flowers would not be so beautiful and vivid. I notice that sometimes life can be the same way. There may be some unpleasant occurrences that bring about better things.
Mother’s Day…. The month of May is a time to honor our mothers and show them that we appreciate everything that they do. When I was younger, I did not agree with a lot of things my mother did. Even as an adult, I did not have a close relationship with my mother. It took me becoming a mother and going through certain life events for me to understand why my mother did what she felt was necessary. I begin to understand that she sacrificed a lot to make sure my siblings and I had certain things. Now we have a closer bond which I am so thankful for.
God gave me one of his Angels to love and take care of…. In 2006, the Thursday before Mother’s Day, I gave birth to my one and only child. On Mother’s Day, I left the hospital with a bouncing baby boy. He is the best child ever. He is always happy, respectful and so full of life. Because of him, I have accomplished so many personal goals and I continually strive to be the best role model and parent. I feel so blessed to have him in my life every single day.
These are some of the reason of why I love the month of May so much. My goal is to live every day like it’s in the month of May. HAPPY 🙂
