May is my birth month. I’m sure that is why I have such a positive association with it. Birthdays were major for me as a kid. It was better than Christmas as far as gifts after I was 4 or so. It seemed to come out of the blue when I was very little, unlike Christmas that had a major lead-up and so much anticipation that there couldn’t help but be a let down when it finally arrived. Birthdays were a surprise. My special day seemed to come out of the blue until I learned to read the signs that it was approaching.
Spring! Not rainy, chilly spring, but warm, bright spring and blossoms galore signaled my approaching birthday! Spring that was filled with tulips, Lilacs, bright and light green leaves led directly and almost imperceptibly into Summer. Summer equaled the end of school. I knew about that even before I went to school because summer, as I conceptualized it, began right around my birthday, and summer was when my brothers were home. Big brothers to bug. Yippee!!! I loved my brothers. They were my world.
So I am planning on having a great month and building upon all those good memories and association. Let’s see if I can have all my personally oriented posts be truly positive ones this month!
