Sign of the Times
Morning Ritual . . . Now With Added Tail-Wagging

Hey, March!

Oh, March.  You are one of my favorite months.  And it's not even because of my birthday.  (Although there is that.)

It's mostly because of . . . this!

Lengthening daylight.

Oh, March, you usher in the end of the dreaded -uary months . . . and for that, I am grateful.  (Because the -uary months are long, cold and dark.)  I know.  I know.  I complain about your fickle weather, March.  Your strong winds and occasional snow.  The ugly and dull landscape.  The mud.  And that time change.  (Ugh.)

But.

There is much to celebrate about you, March!   You bring spring.  New life.  Fresh air.  Bird joy.  Crocus blooms.  Daffodils.  Being able to work in my garden again.  Kites.  St. Patrick's Day.  March Madness.  Easter candy.  The return of Oberon.  My birthday.

Welcome, March!  I'm so glad you're here.

Okay, okay. You have pointed out some great things about March. And the fact that quite a few of my closest friends have March birthdays isn't lost on me.

Birthday!!! Always a good reason to celebrate. I think based on the winter we've had that there is a great March ahead! xo

Hope your birthday is fantastic!

Indeed! I have become a HUGE fan of March, in spite of Daylight Savings Time :-) (which I am committed to embracing this year - I'm a liturgist at our early service on the 12th ... no excuses!) There is much to celebrate this month ... your birthday certainly being one of the best!
