February!

All the “holidays” are over now for awhile … but keep in mind this February is leap year so there are 29 days this month!  Happy Birthday to all you leap-year babies!

The February full moon, called the SNOW MOON will occur at 3:33 am cst on February 9. According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, different tribes had different names for February’s full moon. The Wishram people named it the shoulder to shoulder around the fire moon and the Cherokee people called it the bone moon because animal bones were sometimes their only source of nutrition in the dead of winter. Snow moon is the name that’s most commonly used by almanacs today because of the heavy snowfall that typically hits many parts of North America.

Please slow down, be present, pay it forward if you can, just “smile” and “be kind.”
