Happy May


May is one of my favorite months of the year. I have fond memories of my elementary school days having a May Festival at May's end. It was full of celebration, song, dance, art. Even now as an adult, I still get excited when May comes. It is the month of dandelions, roses, trees being full, bare skin kissed by sun and blue sky days.

Today is May 1st. Magical lore says if you wash your face with May Day dew in the early morning, you'll have beauty, luck and good health all year long. Finally, you'll see the fruits of all the April showers with Mama Earth's explosion of flowers, plants, and new animals life. It is reminder to me that life does continue on.

If you've had a particularly hard winter like I did, do your best to embrace the life you have now. Whatever you don't like, you can change it. This is your life, so make it count and have fun! Every day is a fresh start to be whoever you want to me.

Now, I must go out and dance with the faeries a bit. Thought it's a bit of an overcast sky, I'm sure I can find Rainy day faerie or two who will enjoy the weather with me.

As always, Sweet Dreams to you All.
