May, already?

Spring in Arkansas seems tohave flown by — ok it did with the tornados and straight line winds. We were very fortunate here, and are saying prayers for our neighbors that weren’t so lucky.

May brings with it a season of change. New beginnings and bittersweet endings. This is a crazy time of year for all of us, but this year it seesm to have taken on a surreal sense of calm. I think I know why – but I am not certain. It is sad that I am winding down as the Den Mother for B’s cub scouts. I love each and every one of those little boys, who are on the brink of becoming young men. It is time for me to let someone else have a turn and continue them on their path. I will miss seeing them at each meeting and when I do attend, I will be B’s mom and not the line leader.

Which brings me to another ending. A friend of mine, my age, passed away today. She is the person that initiated me to the term ‘line leader’ long before days of preschool and kindergarten. Although we were not besties, she always had a smile and a twinkle in her eye. She will be missed by her family and friends. MG – practice at being line leader so when we get there you can show us the ropes. We’re counting on you.

Beginnings — spring always brings with it the thought of new beginnings. This is the first time in many years that we have a garden. We are all so excited about having fresh tomatoes and peppers.

I hope to check in more frequently than I have recently. Have a Happy Cinqo de Mayo!!
