May I Spend Moments in May With You?










































































Hey, hey, hey, it's May Day.
*
Do you remember scampering across the grass to leave baskets of sweets on neighbors' porches, hoping you weren't seen? Do you remember the excitement you felt when you found similar baskets on your own porch from the kids next door or across the road?
*
Those were the days, the days of simple pleasures. When I look back over the years to May Days long ago, I see a filtered, pretty version of those times. I imagine we argued over who received the biggest basket and about who we imagined each one was from. Even so, I enjoy a peek into the past. Each new month offers a look ahead, as well, a sense of another opportunity to begin again.
*
Today, the days of April are memories and those of May lie still on our calendars, awaiting our individual sets of footprints. I happily anticipate that our paths will intersect in the days ahead and as always we'll make each others' month just a little bit nicer.
*
Let's make May a marvelous month.

Yes you may.

Another month past us and another new beginning. Time has a way of creeping off like that doesn't it? But, the spring months bring such joyful new beginnings that it is much easier to celecbrate the newness of things to come and forget the things that went undone.

darksculptures: It seems to me that April was only about one week long. The other three snuck past me when I wasn't looking!

Make May your month to truly shine.

Ee Leen Lee: Thank you for coming here. It's always fun to see new faces. My door is always open so come again if you wish.

I am on board for making May a marvelous month of sunshine, flowers, green pastures of fresh mown grass, vivid sunrises and sunsets, warm breezes wafting through the screens, fresh air blowing on newly washed clothes hung to dry, windows rolled down in the car, neighbors walking, baby ducks showing up with their mommy ducks, and blossoming of friendships. Loved these pictures! I never had an opportunity to celebrate May Day as a kid but I do enjoy the changing of seasons now that I am an adult. Have a great weekend my friend!

Annie: I love your list of the pleasures we become reacquainted with when May comes to stay for a while.
