Don't ask me why because there are no big dates in April (births, deaths, losses, etc), but each year it seems to be the month when I can't sleep at night and spend the time instead going over all my past failures and regrets. I know it regularly happens in April because I inevitably end up in my Bible looking for hope, rereading the promises the Lord has given me during the dark times. Then on the edges I see the dates and the prayers - April 2009, April 2011, April 2012, April 2013, and not surprisingly, April 2014. I was too sleep-deprived in April 2010 (Raccoon was 6 months old and waking up 6 times a night at least) to record anything.
Why April? It seems like it should just be an ordinary month. I will breathe a sigh of relief when it's May.
