May is perhaps the busiest month of the year. I graduated from high school and college in May. Many weddings are in May, as was my oldest son's and his wife's (6 years ago last Sunday). Lots of endings come in May.
My father passed away in May, 1996. We buried my father-in-law this May. My youngest grandson was born in May, 2007.
For our church, May means Mother's Day, Children's Place graduation (tomorrow night). Senior Sunday and Memorial Day.
So May is a paradoxical month. A time of change. School comes to an end. Huge life changes for seniors. But May is also about fresh starts. Everything seems to be at its greenest and most colorful in May.
I don't know that it's my favorite month -- because I love the Fall, too. But I like May.
How about you?
