Today is April's Birthday!

Today is my daughter April's birthday. Thirty-six years ago I was rushing to the hospital in the wee hours of the morning - arriving just in time - for April was in a hurry to get here - two months early.
I had no idea what a ray of sunshine she would be. We hadn't even decided on a name yet. But the first time I saw her, I knew. April had a spirit that radiated freshness and new life just like the month she was born in. So Jennifer or Emily just wouldn't do. April was the only name that could match her spirit of light, optimism and hope.
April you are my springtime, my love and my joy. Happy birthday sweetheart. Pin It

Happy Birthday, April. Your name fits you perfectly. I've known people to wait until they see their baby before they name her/him to be sure that the name "fits". Yours is perfect!
