WELCOME AUGUST SUNSHINE:

WELCOME AUGUST SUNSHINE:
 
Welcome to the month of August,
The sun shinning high in the sky.
August is a bitter/sweet month for me
And here's the reason why.
 
It was in this month
I became a bride.
Tears of happiness 
My mother of course cried.
 
We wed on her birthday,
 Sadly both hubby and her no longer here.
But I remember the happiness of that day.
Of that there is no fear.
 
May your August be happy,
May the sun shine on you all.
If you're going on vacation,
Simply have a ball.
 
It's the last month of summer,
Soon leaves will be falling from the trees.
So let us all enjoy the month,
Before sweeping up those leaves/

  4. August has always been good to us. Most of our life changing events have taken place in August. I am a fan of fall, so I am waiting for September.

  5. I have to say that August is great for me too, because it's technically the last month of winter. That said, we have't had nearly enough rain yet...

  9. August will be a busy month here: vacation to visit family, my daughter's birthday, camps for the kids, school shopping. I expect it to fly by, but that's okay, I love it when the leaves turn color and all the wonderful holidays that come in fall.
