The blessings of "May"


Day 3 — Already, during this month which has expectedly inspired me...

There is the idea of a trying something...
to break life's monotony and let your dreams have a chance to grow... #MAYBE i CAN." It becomes almost a dare. And that's exciting! And 'exciting' moves us.

There is the idea that sometimes we need help to do this...
sometimes to give our dreams a chance, we need inspiration, or a jolt, or some help. A "Mayday" call if you will, is believed to be derived from the French expression "venez m'aider", meaning "come help me", the last two syllables of which sound similar to "Mayday".

And today, or actually last night in my kitchen, I realized that the page in my 2014 Quotables calendar for this month, MAY, was an Apache Blessing. Each phrase beginning with the wish, or asking, of the word "May..."

May the sun bring you new energy by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night,
May the rain wash away your worries,
May the breeze blow new strength into your being,
May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.
—Apache blessing
...and a MAY breadcrumb.

Life is short. I have a great photo of me and my Grandma from a few months ago. I try to live with no regrets.

So today my third #MAYBE i CAN is...
 #MAYBE i CAN  take my phone to CVS and FINALLY print and mail this wonderful photo to my 96yr old Grandma. 

What will you try today?
