Today is the last day of April, which means a bunch of different things!
1. It’s the 1 month anniversary of this blog! Hard to believe that it’s been a month already! I am so enjoying writing this, more than I’ve ever enjoyed a blog before. I’ve written more consistently, I have more followers (always a plus!), and I think my content is better. I think my success is due to finally writing about something that comes as naturally to me as breathing–reading. I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am!
2. It’s the 10 year anniversary of Mean Girls! Seems silly, I know. But it has always been one of my favorite movies. It’s hilarious and quotable, sure, but it also has a really great message–stop bullying. That’s important! And, of course, the anniversary had to fall on a Wednesday, and you know what that means. On Wednesdays, we wear pink!!
3. Today ends National Poetry Month. As I said yesterday, I’ll probably keep posting poems every once in awhile, but maybe not every day. It has been a fun project, though!
In the spirit of Mean Girls day, and to end NPM, I have one of my favorite poems for you. It is a short one, but one that hangs on the bulletin board in the den as a reminder to try and be kind.
If I can stop one heart from breaking
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in bain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
