March is always a month of Celebration

For our family, March is always a month of celebration. All the sisters have birthdays. First comes our sister-in-law whose birthday is on the 12th. Then comes Art’s sister whose birthday is on the 18th. And then comes my sister whose birthday which is on the 23rd. In the midst of all of that was also Art’s parents’ wedding anniversary. So for years and years, I have looked forward to the month of March as a time to get together with family to celebrate.

I have always thought that those celebrations come at a good time. By the month of March, we here in Wisconsin tend to be very tired of winter. I know I am. We look forward to spring, even though it typically doesn’t arrive yet in March. For me, it is always good to have something to look forward to. It keeps my spirits up. It makes me happy.

Thankfully there are other special days to remember and to celebrate in March:
1. The first Friday of March is World Day of Prayer, which is a day set aside in Christian churches in over 170 countries to pray for the people of the world.
2. March 14 has become National Pi Day, a day to celebrate the mathematical concept of the number that never ends (3.1415926………). It has also become a day to celebrate pi by eating a slice of pie.
3. March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day which remembers the Patron Saint of Ireland. We all like to become a little Irish on that day to party and eat corned beef and cabbage.
4. The first day of Spring will be on March 20. Quite often it doesn’t feel like spring yet in Wisconsin, but marking the date of the Spring Equinox reminds us that warmer weather isn’t too far away.

I look forward to Spring every year (even if it doesn’t always arrive in March). It reminds me that hope springs eternal. It reminds me that we are able to move beyond tough times. It reminds me that we all have second chances. It reminds me that life comes forth out of death.

During this month of March as we find ourselves in the tug between winter and spring, my prayer is that we all will find something to celebrate. Each day should give us a reason to celebrate and to give thanks to God. I hope that you find many blessings this month.
