Spring in the Northern Hemisphere may officially begin in March, but it is in April when the weather typically starts to feel springlike. A month that starts with a day of tricks (April Fool's Day) and usually includes Major League Baseball's Opening Day, as well as my youngest son's birthday, April is a month I look forward to. When I think of any specific month, I initially think of people who were born that month - and with a family that includes 5 siblings, their spouses and children, all months are going to involve a birthday or two. Then, of course, holidays are going to come to mind (who can think of December and not think "Christmas!") as well as other special events that happen every year in a certain month. There are also things that have happened in certain months that involve sad memories (January will always come with the reminder of my dad's passing). The sad parts will always be a part of our memories, just as the people of Boston will always remember the moments when their marathon was taken from glorious to horrific. My thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone that has had their life changed by the terrible events this April 15th.
