Ides of March

March March March. Left, right, left right left.

I love March. Why? March Madness, WIAA basketball tournaments, the hint of spring - the sun shown today and I think it reached 40 degrees.

Reasons March isn't so great... a friend of mine lost her daughter on March 15th a year or so before Jacob was born. Secondly, I was on bedrest and hospitalized for the month of March in 2006.

While some of us celebrate spring, St. Patricks Day, good TV, others are dreading this month, this day, reliving a parents worst nightmare...

If there is anything that I can give to April's memory it would be to love my children, hold them close and not take them for granted.

I'm so sorry for your friend. I can't imagine her loss.
