New Months!

I LOVE new months.

Fresh beginnings.

I've probably blogged about this before, but I REALLY enjoy the changing of the calendar from month to month. I make goals and track them, some more successfully than others. I enjoy the thought that I can begin again on whatever it is I want to change in my life.

I love to learn new things and change old habits.

I love to experience the seasons and celebrate the upcoming celebrations.

I even enjoy the mundane - changing the Britta filter and putting in a new pair of contacts.

My son came down to breakfast today and commented that I was in a good mood. He asked why and I answered, "It's May 1st!" He understood. Crazy mother!

Many may classify me as pessimistic (at least, those who KNOW me), but I think there's a big hopeful side to my personality. I believe that when the Lord said He gives us new mercies each and every day, He meant for us to enjoy the refreshment that comes with new beginnings.

Look for the little joys in what May will bring. I hope it will be refreshing!

So cute that your kids already know this about you. I love the new, too!! Even a new water filter. Cute. ;) Although part of me does grieve time passing so quickly with 2 lil' girls. Sigh.
