May is one of *those* months for our family - a month loaded with spring sports, school events, holidays, and family parties. I try to avoid making eye contact with the calendar on the front of our refrigerator; it's so jam packed with scribbled notes, appointments, and plans that it makes my heart skip a beat with anxiety at how we'll get it all done this month.

May is also a rainy month here in SW Ohio. While I love to see a blue sky lit by a bright sun on a spring day, I've enjoyed the rainy days we've had lately because as the rain falls, games and practices are cancelled. Suddenly, what was an uber-busy day becomes more relaxed and less hurried.

Try as we might to keep life from getting frantic and over-scheduled with activities (and we really do limit what our kids do), having three kids close in age keeps us busy here. And it seems that just when I get pushed to my limit, God steps in and gives me a rainy day or a snow day or just a sick day, a day that stops the ever-ticking clock and gives us all a chance to kick back and enjoy each other's company.

Until they start their typical sibling squabbling...but that's a post for another day!

I hope you feel blessed in some way - small or great - this week. If you'd like to share a post about what's good in your life, feel free to add your post link to the Mr. Linky below.
