April is a month of celebration in my family. We have two family birthdays, including mine, and I have several friends who celebrate a birthday this month too. Three of whom celebrate a birthday on the same day as me.
I also got married in April. I’m grateful I met my husband and we had a family. We also enjoy a good relationship and have been able to co-parent without drama. He is a good father to our children and they love and respect him. I still appreciate his humor, at least, most of the time! One cannot ask for more.
I survived a major traffic accident in April, many years ago, and given a new lease on life. It is something I have written about in another post because it changed my life in many ways. Years later, when it gets cooler, my movements are slower when I recall the accident in pain. The upside is I was given a financial compensation that helped me buy my first home in the days when it was almost unheard of for a single woman to get a mortgage.
April is often a month of chocolates! What’s not to love about this!
For those in the Northern Hemisphere, April may signal spring. For us in the Southern Hemisphere, it is autumn. A time to look forward to the new.
Easter often comes around in April. For those who celebrate Easter, it is a time to experience reflection, renewal and hope.
It starts getting cooler in the Southern Hemisphere around this time of year. I always seem to feel the first chill in the Wheatbelt where the horizon hides nothing and space takes charge. I know how beautiful it can be at dawn and I rug up and head out to get a photograph or two. It is a time when I practice what I preach.
Until next time
