It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 5, Page 4, Book 16



While strolling through the park one day. In the merry merry month of May I was taken by surprise. By a pair of roguish eyes….

May 4th - the sweet and merry month of May

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May. 

William Shakespeare

 The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and Mother Nature is in full bloom. May is indeed a merry month! And I for one couldn't be happier about it.

When the weather warms up we all seem to do more than usual here at my house.  There’ll be some outdoor parties and picnics going on and top it off the end of May brings our Memorial Day celebration.  

Meanwhile there’s work to be done outside and planting to be done.  Every day I’m blessed with something new blooming in the yard and today’s pictures are of the honeysuckle bush blooming outside my front door.



After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem there is a solution, and the soul's indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer. 

William R. Alger

The warmer weather also brings some storms our way and even though we’d rather have a sunny day, we also need the rain.  

Life is full of storms. Some will be mild others will be difficult. Perhaps you have heard the saying, Into each life some rain must fall, just remember that behind each cloud the sun is shinning. 

We all have life storms, and when we get the rough times and we recover from them, we should celebrate that we got through it. No matter how bad it may seem, there's always something beautiful that you can find. 

Mattie Stepanek

All in the merry merry month of May

Today it is a short paragraph I needed, THANKS for this:

Life is full of storms. Some will be mild others will be difficult. Perhaps you have heard the saying, Into each life some rain must fall, just remember that behind each cloud the sun is shinning.

I do like that song "In the Merry, Merry Month of May". May is a month full of promises; new blooms, pleasant weather without the hot days ahead, longer days filled with sunshine, etc. But so true, we do need the rain if we want the water for the flowers and to drink; and every life will have storms, but after the storm usually comes a sunny day or two.

May is my birthday month, so it is merry, indeed. "Into each life some rain must fall, just remember that behind each cloud the sun is shinning." That quote is worth repeating.
