I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter! We had the most joyful day. Although I missed my extended family in New York, and the Easter vigil service at my church that I had attended since childhood, I was surrounded this holiday by my children and grandchildren, and all I could think was "It doesn't get any better than this!"
I managed to get a photo of our appetizers, but when dinner arrived I was so busy preparing everything that my camera stayed dormant. In between, we had an Easter egg hunt, a lego firetruck built by oldest grandson, lots of chocolate eggs eaten by the littlest grandboy, sleeping and cooing by baby granddaughter, and lots of love and laughter shared around our table by my family.
Last year was an unbelievable year of change ... a year of sad and happy events...of finding a new home in a few whirlwind days ... selling and packing up a house we lived in for 36 years in New York ... driving 1800 miles across the country ... settling in to a new way of life in Colorado and welcoming a new grandbaby. As an Easter reflection, I realized this was truly a re-birth for my husband and myself, and I feel incredibly blessed that we were able to do all of this!
Thank you Lord, for all the blessings you have bestowed upon us, and keep us in your graces. Amen
