When you were a kid did you leave May baskets made of construction paper and filled with candies and popcorn for your friends and neighbors?
We did. But I was too harried when my own children were young to continue the tradition.
When the youngest left for college without ever making a May basket, I was filled with regret and guilt.. the mother's curse.
So a group of us banded together, forming the Grandma Brigade. We gathered neighborhood kids, made May baskets, filled the red wagon with the baskets. The kids went around the neighborhood delivering joy and friendship.
Today my 8-year-old friend, Shai, is coming for a visit. We are going to make May baskets to give to her family . Shhhhh, don't tell.
Wishing you a May Day filled with friendship!
