May is a month of celebrations and remembrances.

In the United States, we call the second Sunday in May Mothers’ Day to honor mothers. We may not be one, but we all have one, although like me, yours may be deceased.
You may have pleasant or not so pleasant memories of your mother, as nurturing may not come easily to some women, possibly because they did not receive it. Sometimes when that happens, other women step in to bridge the gap. They deserve to be honored also.
Other events that typically occur in May include proms, graduations, and weddings. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, those are either not happening or are done vastly different than usual. Some are finding quite creative ways to still create meaningful memories.
I married my husband in May; I almost share an anniversary with the Duchess of Sussex, the former American actress Meghan Markle. She and Prince Harry are parents of a cute baby boy, Archie. And now they live in the United States, California. Their marriage has been strained by outside and internal stressors, as have most of ours. I wrote about our marriage journey in this post
May timely topics include
- spring and summer health concerns
- Memorial Day, another U.S. national observance
- women’s health
- books about mothers
thanks for exploring the HEART of health with me
