Still playing make believe.

March? How’d That Happen?


Can you believe it’s March already? I can’t. Seems like just yesterday was February.

So, March. Anybody know where March got its name? Anybody? (No cheating by looking it up.)

What do you think of when you think of March? I think of —

  1. Wind! In like a lion and out like a lamb or vice versa? I can never remember. Maybe it changes every year, just to keep me confused.
  2. St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve never looked into who St. Patrick was (did he drive the snakes out of Ireland?) or how we’re supposed to be celebrating, but I can’t imagine it’s with green beer. (Yuck.) Or pinching anyone who’s not wearing green.

Question: When you drink green beer, do your teeth absorbed the green color? Or is it just people with green teeth who drink it?


3. Often we have Easter to stress over in March. Not this year (it’s a couple of days after my birthday in April.) So instead of Easter, I’m stressing over–

      4- BB’s wedding.

Hey, stress keeps my heart beating and me kicking, so it’s all good.

March also means that this year is 1/6 gone. Good grief. I think there’s a magician out there somewhere who’s making entire weeks disappear.

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

  1. Do you suppose your Mom ever stressed out over all you kids’ weddings? I’m sure I was at all of those beautiful weddings! I think the saying about March is “in like a lamb–out like a lion” and “in like a lion–out like a lamb”. It looks like its going to be the first scenario!!! My best to you on your son’s wedding!! Also, do you know that St. Patrick’s Day is also Sheila Bowen Pitto’s birthday?? Its such a good day!! God bless!!

    • I’m sure Mama stressed, but she was really good at hiding her feelings. 🙂
      I didn’t know that was Sheila’s birthday. It’s also Whitney’s (Cindy’s daughter) and Canaan’s (Debbie’s granddaughter.)
      Kind of like September 30th. Dad, Joyce and Roger were all born on that wonderful day!
      I think I was born on one of your sister’s birthdays. Carleen’s maybe?

I'm so glad you dropped by my Small Town World! Hope you'll leave a comment. I really enjoy hearing from you!
