Our Easter was calm. Our day was spent with us. When I was little we lived in Massachusetts so what I remember about holidays was it was just us. Hubs was the same. In fact, that’s one reason we get along so well. We love our extended family and are so happy to see them and join in but we love being just us.
We slept in-Row has a way of sleeping in on days when most kids get up early-like Christmas. Row woke up and hubs went and got her for snuggles-we snuggle on the weekend. Just the three of us. We heard the door creak and Grandma joined just us. She’s become a part of us and we wouldn’t want her to miss any of the fun.
Row had put her Easter basket out on the table the night before in hopes the Easter Bunny would come. We talked about the promise of Jesus and how he was making all things new again. How he was removing the veil between us and God. How in Spring everything becomes new.
She woke up to her basket filled to the brim with treats-I let the bunny know she’s not into candy much these days.
She was so happy-so content and so were we.
That’s what we did all day-just be, just us.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday reflecting and looking forward to all things new.
