March was a tough month. I’d lie if I said it was easy. My entire year, so far, has been an uphill struggle. I have said several times that I was ready to start 2012 over. Or just start it at a particular date. “As of (insert date here) I am staring 2012. All terrible things that were supposed to happen this year have happened and now it’s time for unicorns and rainbows.” It sounds whiny of me — and it is.

You see, March taught me that the best things in life aren’t things. (Deep down, I already knew this. I have just reinstated it into my daily life now… It’s even my desktop image on my computer.)

March 2nd – I was with my family when a dozens of tornadoes wrecked through the midwest. My husband was in Washington D.C. for work and I had taken the day off of work to spend quality time with my mom. It was everyone’s normal Friday until Mother Nature decided to change everyone’s good day. This day changed the way I viewed the rest of March. I didn’t care about my “things” any longer. What I had. What I wanted. I only cared about  one thing: giving myself to those in need. I had time and an able body to give and I did. I didn’t physically help every day. I was really only able to give a few days of my time out in the field. But I made an effort. Spread the word. Collected donations. Gave donations. A HUGE thank you to all who donated! Met an amazing family who lost it all, yet were able to keep their joy.

So here’s March me. Dirty. Straight from the fields. Satisfied.
