April Come She Will, #1171

Standard

April is birthday month.  At least it always has been in my family.  My aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, nephew, me – so many of us have April birthdays.  I always am reminded of this when April 3rd comes along, and my cousin’s birthday is standing front and center.  He’s the beginning of the April birthday month of celebrating and well wishes.

I am also reminded when the daffodils are in bloom.  They were the clear signal that my birthday was coming up when I was little.  They were by birthday alarm clock.  To this day, daffodils are my favorite flowers.

What’s funny about this is that it seems that my kids’ friends all have April birthdays, too.  This weekend and next weekend are all planned around the parties.  I think we have 5 of them to go to over the next 2 weeks.  Plus my own celebrating!

April is a happy month, and it is also a good excuse to listen to my favorite “April” song by Simon and Garfunkel.  “April Come She Will” may not be the most popular April song, but I think it’s beautiful, so enjoy, and happy birthday everyone!

About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
