The word April is believed to come from the Latin word aperire which means “to open” (referring to a spring season – blossoming of flowers, trees, and leaves). April is often when we reset our goals for the year; a time to fine tune them and re-establish our motivation toward our goals. The birthstone for the month of April is the diamond. Diamonds are believed to amplify the thoughts of the wearer, thus helping those thoughts become actions. April is the month to go for it!
If you are looking for a reason to celebrate all month, April is also International Guitar Month, National Autism Awareness Month, National Fresh Celery Month, Keep America Beautiful Month, National Straw Hat Month, Jazz Appreciation Month, National Poetry Month, and Foot Health Awareness Month.
