Second Half 
Dear Patricia, 
April is a beautiful month. The sun begins to shine a little brighter and people can begin to enjoy the warmer weather. It is a time to clean out both your home and your life. Donate things in your home that you never seem to use and that just cause clutter, and remove people or things from your life that only bring negativity. As they say "April showers bring May flowers".

Happy April!
