Happy May Day!

Greetings~~beautiful month of May.

Don't you just love this time of year? This new season full of new growth, Spring blooms and warmer days. But along with the beauty comes the reality of tragic storms and tornadoes that have claimed the lives and homes of so many of our friends in the southern states. I can't even imagine the pain, the loss of life and the major clean up for hundreds.
My heart and prayers go out to those affected, in the hopes of better days ahead and God's love to give comfort and strength in the face of despair.

Mother's Day will be upon us soon and in honor of this wonderful day, to honor all Mother's, I am offering a special discount this week in my etsy shoppe. Using coupon code MAYMOM20 at check out and receive 20% off any item May 1st through May 8th.
Thank you for visiting today and Blessings for a wonderful May Day.

Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie

Happy May day to you Celestina Marie and so glad the spring time has arrived there.
So sad to see the destruction that is going on with the tornado's in your Country. My thoughts and prayers are with the people effected. Stay safe and enjoy your week.

Celestina, you are so right about the storms this year! My daughter went into work this past Monday and spent the first half hour in the basement of her accounting firm. They had a tornado warning, sirens and all! If I had known that was going on with her I would have been terrified!!

Patti said...

A very happy May Day to you, Celestina. It's hard for me to actually believe that it's May...I'm still wearing fleece pajamas and using the flannel sheets. Seems like it will never warm up.

Oh, my heart is right there with you with regard to all the folks affected by the deadly storms. My husband has a cousin who lives in Tuscaloosa. I heard from her mom via Facebook, so I know they survived the storm, but I'm sure they incurred alot of damage.

Happy May Day to you to! I am soooo ready for May..June...July...
Waiting for more rain to roll in here in Ohio, but no tornados..yet
Ohio gets some humdinger storms bordering tornadic sometimes hurricane force winds..always have that I can rmemeber. I think the Angel that oversees water, gave such a drought that he's trying to overcompensate now.

Hi Celeste, a very happy may day to you as well. The weather is quite lovely here in NY and I was out taking a long walk this morning. I hope the weather down by you has calmed down a bit and you are able to enjoy spring. Take care... enjoy.

Happy May to you Celeste! I love May as it brings with it buds and blooms. We have seen a lot of buds, but the blooms are way behind.
My prayers for all those people who suffered loss from the tornados. I cannot imagine such devastation.

Just a quick note of thanks for adding me in your Sale! And to say Happy Spring!
Inspite of the storms, God is so good and He will bring joy through the storm. Aren't we sooo much closer and wiser after a tragity?

How He brings new life in the spring is such a wonderful refresher of hope!
