Look on every exit as being 
an entrance to somewhere else.

Welcome May !


The world’s favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.

Edwin Way Teale

May is such a joyous month for me.  So I thought I’d mention just a few of things I’m looking forward to.

We start the month with a birthday for one of my granddaughters on May 3rd.  There will also be a few more birthdays to celebrate along with Mothers Day. And another at towards the end of the month. There are also 2 anniversaries in our family and those are also joyous occasions not only for the happy couples but also for this happy mom.  I love to see my children happy!


Spring is God’s way of saying, One more time!

Robert Orben

May 5th we celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Tacos and this year I’ll be at DS#6’s house to share in the festivities.  

I love flowers and after mid May it usually safe to plant them outdoors here so I’m looking forward to filling the flower boxes on the patio.


I have two grandsons that will be making their first communions too.  Such an important step in their life and one they’ll never forget.  There will also be 3 grandchildren graduating from High School this year.  This is such an exciting time for them as they start the beginning of a new chapter in their lives.


The end of the month will bring Memorial Day and I have many to remember.  Not only those in our Armed Forces but family and friends that are gone but never forgotten and remain in my heart forever.  

Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of Summer.  Many schools will close and vacations will begin.  Pools open for lots of fun and I hope to celebrate with a family picnic.  Not so sure yet when or where.



Sweet April showers 
Do bring May Flowers.

Thomas Tusser


All in the merry merry month of May !

Wow, May is filled with lots of good things ahead! A wide variety of fun activities too! Best part is always being together with the family that can be together to celebrate special times!

Every exit, an entrance. That's a neat perspective!

What joyous times you've got coming up! That graduation invite/announcement is so unique; I love how young people are being allowed to express their individuality. 'Glad I postponed our trip to Wal-Mart now, because I want to add taco shells to the list! :)
