Good Morning, Mistress and Master,
I wish you a happy day;
Please to smell my garland
‘Cause it’s the First of May.
A branch of May I have brought you,
And at your door I stand;
It is but a sprout, but it’s well budded out,
The work of Nature’s hand.
—from A Child’s Seasonal Treasury
Happy May Day! Today is one of my favorite days of the year because May Day celebrations are so beautiful and full of flowers and because it is my older son’s birthday. This year feels extra special because Lucas is turning 10. A decade of our lives has been spent loving and raising this beautiful boy.
He is magnificent and I love him so!
