The kids will be all dressed up for Easter and anxious for church to be over; although we hope they listen and learn from the teaching of this day.
Ladies, and some men, have prepared a huge meal for a family and friend’s gathering. Yes, the table is full and waiting for the crowd to descend. Before you know it, adults are lined up on a screened porch or wherever they can find to settle down, moaning, because they’ve eaten too much.
After, the kids finally get to have some fun. Easter egg hunt. Yeah! Despite a few skinned knees, spilled baskets, sad faces that they didn’t find that “Special” egg, there are always happy squeals and laughter to fill the air. Maybe they found a bunny!
Mom’s, unless you brought extra clothes for the kids to change into, don’t be surprised if you’ll need to break out the spray for those stubborn grass stains. What matters is that the kids have fun. Grass stains are the least of our worries.
This Easter will be the second time in years I haven’t colored eggs. The kids have all grown up, so there won’t be an egg hunt this year. I have beautiful memories of all the places I’ve enjoyed visiting with family and friends on this special day.
My fondest memory is with my son, surrounded by boiled eggs and brightly colored cups of mixture to drop the eggs into. Ah, those were the days.
Wherever you go, whatever you do on this upcoming Easter, make it special.
I wish you a Happy Easter, Love, Butterflies and Music.
