“April”…a “Giddy” Month

Thoughts of ???…A refreshing month…washed clean with “April” showers …washed clean with the blood of our Savior…A renewing month…Spring flowers coming up from the Earth that has been warmed by the sun …Maybe a time to recollect and Spring Forward in our own lives!…The warm sun makes our bodies feel better…closed up in the house most of the winter…with snow , rain and cold…Now is the time to come outdoors and see what is going on around us…I know my neighbors are venturing out like us…A time to say, “Hi! How have you been doing?” … I look up and the sky seems clear and blue…It makes my body just want to stretch as far as it will go…getting all those muscles stretched out …Awakening from hibernation like a “Mamma Bear” …Spring, which to me is “APRIL”…makes me want to move…to go places…I get the urge to take trips…make plans…see people I haven’t seen…We’ve already started “Spring” cleaning…I want to get all the inside done where I can enjoy the outside…By May those thoughts should be fulfilled…April of course makes me think of  “April Showers”…that bring the “May Flowers” …Spring really makes me see God‘s handiwork…I love it!…He shows me how wonderful He is in His creation of our wonderful Earth…Everyone around is hearing of so much destruction, so much sadness, so much injustice… I’m so glad I have the Lord in my heart where I can hear those things…but, still know and feel and see the beauty  around me…Thank you Lord for the “Hope” you have given me…the “Love” you have shown me…the”Knowledge” to know there is even more “Goodness” ahead of us that we cannot even imagine!…It seems “April” has brought me more than I had thought of …more than the showers, the flowers, the warmth…It has brought me “Peace”  within myself…and I pray there will be others with such “Peace” this April as we celebrate the rising of our Lord unto the Heavens  to be with His Father and to be with us always…Maybe a time to let those “April Showers” wash away all of our dust and make us fresh again!

“MY KIDS!”…

 at school was a time for “Spring Fever”…I do believe it is a true thing! …”Spring Fever” can be very contagious…and once it hits …you just don’t know what will happen…It makes us giddy…I like that word…it means, “Extremely Happy, Excited, Behaving Foolishly and Impulsively”…I guess “April Fools Day…gets it’s meaning from the word “Giddy” then…A time to play jokes, surprise people and just have !…One of our kid’s favorite days…to be able to play pranks and it be “covered” by, “But, it’s April Fool’s Day!”…I had notes taped on my back  without me knowing it…Things rearranged on my desk…Things said that were not really true… I guess you can say it gave us the Freedom to just be funny and carefree…I think a few days like that would be good for all! Our kids were ready to be outside and so were we…so out to the track we went to walk, play games  and just let some of that pent-up energy out…”It Helped!”…We came back in more relaxed but, also more energized…It made us feel happy…There was talk of warm weather sports, the guys were eyeballing the girls and the girls were eyeballing the boys…Yes, “Spring Fever” can be touched with “Love” in the air…or at least a little flirting…We always had the argument of wearing shorts about this time of year…This is where the “impulsiveness” comes in I guess… Kids love shorts, t-shirts and sandals…”So do I!”…but, there were rules…and we had to call many a parent to bring in different clothes for their child  to put on after they arrived in their shorts and favorite t-shirt……as if they didn’t know the “Rules”…”Giddy” also means in the “Old English” version defintion…”severly mentally challenged”…I had no idea!…so our kids with that title…really only had “Spring Fever!”   How about That!
