May Day

The first of May always reminds me of my mother. She and I both went to the University of Richmond, albeit at different times! She used to tell me about May Days at U of R and it sounded so lovely - all the girls with their flowers, and the May Pole celebrating spring. Of course by the time I got there, May Day was a thing of the past. How sad to have missed out on that tradition.

Now, May reminds me of Mary, the mother of God. This morning I was pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful May basket hanging on my door. The givers of this basket are 2 of my favorite little girls, and I was so touched to have them think of me. BTW, my basket is the one in the middle of the first picture. Thank you for bringing me such joy today.
