OOTD – April a Month of Rebirth & Death

Posted on: April 3, 2013

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

April is a month of renewal and rebirth and for many years one of excitement and joy – a cousin’s birthday on the 1st; my grandmother’s birthday on the 2nd; my sister’s birthday on the 10th; another cousin’s birthday on the 12th; an uncle’s birthday on the 15th; an aunt’s birthday on the 19th and finally my ‘best friend since 3rd grade’s’ birthday on the 25th.

Now April is a month of death – my grandmother’s death; my sister’s death; and my uncle’s death makes this a sad month for me.  I look at the blooms on the Daffodils and Tulips with sadness in my eyes…my daily routines are muted…there’s no real joy in my heart…dark colors comfort me…my heart aches and my smiles seem forced…but life goes on and “This Too Shall Pass”.

One of these days I’m going to go wild like you with the nail color 🙂

Selling Avon makes it hard not to try the new colors!

Let me know what colors – as I have over 75 bottles, and would gladly send you some!

Love the Black & White outfit and the different jewelry you tried with it too!

March & April seem to be the month’s of death around our place. My grandfather passed away on March 22 this year and his wife, my grandmother passed away 2 years ago in April. Most of my husbands family has died in March so I completely understand your post. Life does continue on, but it can be rough at times. You are in my prayers.

Yes, rebirth and renewal from disaster and death…I guess the Holy Season and Resurrection Sunday brings it even closer. My grandmother, age 98 died of old age, but I can’t get over the loss of my sister who was killed in a car accident in 1992 at the age of 29. This too Shall Pass…just wish it would hurry up! Have a mah-va-lous day my bloggy friend!

Love the printed skirt!

Thank you, one of my favorite clearance pieces from @JCP

Well put…”there’s a time & season for everythg under the sun” Eccl 3:1! Love your outfit, my fav is wearing black or black/white!

Thank you, if you like black and white…you’ll love today’s OOTD.

I am sad to hear that this is a painful month. I am thinking about you. My grandmother also passed away this month so I do understand.

On another note you look lovely. I really like this outfit especially the skirt!

Thank you my dear – grandmother’s are special people. Enjoy the day!

You look great and I like the nail color! It does sound like the month of April holds different emotions for you. It is such a blessing to be able to think about the fun times you had with your loved ones.

Yes, thank you. Life is precious and the memories of our loved ones keep them alive. Thanks for commenting.
