Here Comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity, Easter's on it's way!
Bringing every girl and boy
Baskets full of Easter joy
Happy Easter Day!
I needed a little break from work and the computer, so I put together my Easter table. It looks fresh and cheers me when I walk into the room. I especially love the bunny on the shelf who is wearing bunny slippers (did you notice them?) And the Easter basket pictured was my mother's when she was a child, and then it was mine, and then it was Katie's. When Katie moved to Puerto Rico she left it with me, and I need to get it to back to her so one of her little girls can love it as much as I did. It even has the original grass in it - good, thick paper grass. Not the shiny plastic kind.
I feel lucky this year to be enjoying good health for myself, and good health for my family. At this time, we're all doing pretty well *knocking wood* And I am so, so grateful. My parents are still active and vital, and my brothers and their families are happy and well. I'm feeling especially fortunate because I read a couple of blogs tonight written by people I consider friends - even though I've never met them. One lost her husband yesterday to a long illness. Another is having a mastectomy tomorrow. Both are facing these challenges with grace and courage. I am learning many good lessons from them - although I'm sure they'd rather not be teaching them.
So tonight I am thankful for blessings big and small. For faith. For prayers. For health. For family and friends. Friends I've met, and friend's I've only "read." I thank you for the laughs, the hilarity, and even for sharing the tears. My life is all the more rich for knowing you. Thank you for being part of my life, and letting me be even a small part of yours.
