Welcome to April at Streampebbles.com! In this issue the story resumes at Memory Lane of Richie’s Footsteps through life in an orphanage to joining the military, Leon Stewart offers a story we can all relate to in Maybe I shouldn’t have… Three friends find they have more to learn in The Principal’s principle. And much more for our younger readers!
Spring has gloriously sprung in southern Arizona! Vibrant colors have exploded in backyard havens and along less-traveled roadways; artfully re-decorating winter’s drab terrain for as far as the eye can see; beckoning butterflies, delighting Bees and Hummingbirds while offering that special palpable sense of newness that only spring can share! And I know I’m not alone as I embrace this seasonal splendor with watery eyes and rejoice between sneezes!
In the New England/Great Lakes area the Native Americans call April the month of the Pink Moon for the abundance of pink wildflowers. Looks like we can look forward to a Pink Moon in southern Arizona as well!
April celebrations include a few of my personal favorites such as National Poetry Month, Library Week and Children’s Book Day. And isn’t it fitting to have a National Lawn & Garden Month along with National Straw Hat Month? They’ve reserved an entire week for Read a Road Map. Does anyone even own one anymore? Can you just imagine how the world would sound on International Moment of Laughter Day? I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the idea of National Honesty Day is embraced by those who should. And a big shout out to every persevering, miracle working, secret keeping, fact & file finding expert on Administrative Assistant’s Day!
