Easter Sunday Morning

Actually on THIS Easter Sunday Morning, my tulips are not yet in bloom (because Easter is about a month earlier than usual) and my entire little world is covered in a couple of inches of snow. But it is supposed to get up to 50 some ºs today, so it should melt.

I am getting ready to go to church. I love Easter Sunday. In my prayer and meditation this morning, I wept. I wept in gratitude for the great love that is given to me, undeserved by me, and yet freely given.

All of the kids and grandkids are coming over later. If the snow melts, I will hide Easter eggs. I will assemble Easter baskets after mass. I look forward to smelling a ham cooking later today. And potatoes au gratin. and a strawberry cake. and asparagus. and etc., etc., etc.

My last ever (please dear God) binge was on Easter weekend 1983. It was horrifying. I couldn't even cook Easter dinner for my young children. And now I get to watch my daughter disappoint her children... it is so sad.

Well, I think you deserve it all. You are God's child after all.

Snow on Easter, I can't even imagine that. I believe that the day will come, that you will see your daughter walk in your footsteps thru our beautiful program....and that one day, her grown children will come to her house for Easter dinner.
Enjoy the food and company..little chocolate bunny.

Every night in my prayers I picture your beautiful granddaughter whose picture you posted the other day. This morning as I got ready for church, I was thinking of you. Know that you and your family are thought of, and prayed for many miles away. Have a wonderful Easter.

Happy Easter MC. Ham....yummy smells of Easters past. I hope you had a beautiful bunny-filled day. We are returning from Texas on Tuesday. See you on the other side of the border. J

Hope you had a nice day and that while your daughter is not yet where you are, she may be one day and until then, your grandchildren have you.

An easter egg hunt in the snow. What a great idea. I'm glad that you had a good day.
