Marvelous March

Just like that we have wrapped up a fabulous month of February. It was nice to take some time to appreciate each day and I learned quite a bit last month so I’m thinking… why not March? And after a little bit of research, March is turning out to be quite a month…hello-march-2015

Marvelous March

Did you know that March is named for the Roman God “Mars” and is:

  • Irish American Month

  • National Craft Month
  • National Frozen Food Month
  • National Irish American Heritage Month
  • National Nutrition Month
  • National Peanut Month
  • National Women’s History Month
  • Red Cross Month

and March 1st marks:

  • Birthday of Harry Caray, American sportscaster, in 1914

That was just a sampling…

I’m going to continue to post things each day this month for a couple reasons. One, I have a lot of little things that I want to continue to share and two, I really have enjoyed seeing how many cool things happen each and every day. It helps reinforce the uniqueness we get to experience every day we are here. Life moves so fast nowadays I want to make sure I appreciate it. As Ferris Bueller so eloquently put it,



I’m a big believer that every day is a blessing. Every week is a gift, every month is a masterpiece. Take the time to enjoy them all because even when the clouds are dark and winds are howling, after every storm lies a calm and behind every raincloud lies a rainbow. Blessings, like days of the month, are there, day after day. Each time we take a moment to notice and appreciate them is a moment we realize how lucky we all are. 

Thanks for reading, have a great day!
