May Day Tradition

May Day is just around the corner. Do you do anything SpeCiaL to celebrate May Day?

For as long as I can remember my mom and dad have had their own May Day tRadiTion.  Each spring morning on the first day of May, my dad hand delivers a freshly picked wildflower to my mom.  Can’t you just picture him?  A hardened Kansas farmer with callused hands and weathered skin, hand selecting the prettiest flowers from the middle of his cattle pasture to deliver to his wife of 36 years?  That mental image always melts my heart…  Sometimes nature dictates what’s in season.  The wildflower may be yellow, white, or blue, but the beauty and L O V E it represents remains the same each year.

Having only been married for 5 years I see how easily life gets in the way of doing the “little things” to express my love.  Sometimes the simplest act can show the greatest amount of thoughtfulness and appreciation.  This year consider starting a new tradition with your loved one.  You never know… it may end up being something you’ll hear your kids talk about after your 36th year of marriage :)  Make this May Day a MeMoraBLe one!

Cheers!
