Welcome, welcome, welcome to the month of August. This is the 8th month in the year 2020 and a lot of things have happened this past months. A lot of good things have happened to people. A lot of bad things have happened to people. The covid 19 pandemic should be one of the bad things that has affected everyone this year. But if there is one thing I am grateful for, it’s LIFE. The mere fact that I wake up in the morning healthy, that I can breathe fresh air, that I can move my body, that I have life, makes me smile. And believe me when I say that this, should be what makes everyone smile everyday. You have life and that is what matters. Many people have died this year but you are still alive and well. Do you think it’s by luck? Of course not!!!!! It’s only by grace. A grace given to each and every one of us by God. So, forget your worries for a moment, breathe in the fresh air, appreciate the fact that you are alive and just smile.
That being said, I’m going to give you some brief facts about the month of August, like I do every other month. August is the 8th month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calenders and the fifth of seven months to have a length of 31 days. Initially named sextilis in Latin, it was renamed in honour of Augustus Ceaser (a roman statesman and military leader who became the first emperor of the Roman Republic)
August birthstones are the spinel, peridox and sardonyx.
It’s birth flower is the gladiolus or poppy, meaning beauty, love, strength of character and family.
