Will the Easter bunny be visiting you?
Did you ever have a bunny? I didn't, but would love one now. Don't think it's going to happen!!
What do you remember from Easters past? Did your mom make new dresses for you and your sisters? Mine did. I especially remember the gingham checked ones, with hand embroidered flowers on the front, over my heart. Those were incredibly special. Then off to church to celebrate our blessings. Then afterwards, the posing in the front yard with the relatives, blinding sun in your eyes, and finally....getting to search for the Easter baskets.
My mom spent hours hand drawing clues on little white slips of paper, like a true treasure hunt, hidden all over the house. It was marvelous, the anticipation grew stronger with each clue discovered. How many more...where is the darn thing...what will be in it? Everyone...just get out of my way...I have work here to be done. Then finally, WOW! The treasure is discovered, even better than last years, how could that be possible? More candy and treats than I had seen for months.
I have much to be grateful for this Easter. I still have my little Chester boy, even though he is struggling with his illness. He is my inspiration this Easter, reminding me that each day is truly a blessing, so enjoy it. I have a wonderful home, family, husband. And in addition, this year an outreaching of love and support from all of you. Have I told you recently how much you mean to me? Well, you do!
Have a wonderful Easter celebration, won't you? I hope the day brings you peace, fulfillment, and a feeling of renewal, wherever you are and whomever you are with.
Thank you to "The Graphics Fairy" for this darling picture.
