Easter


It was a nice weekend at my house.  Usually Easter is full of alot of running around, but since I can't do that right now...we kept it simple, and it was nice.   Highlights for me are simple, but I have been so cut up and sore, I haven't been able to snuggle my girls in quite some time.  This weekend, I was able to lay on the couch and watch movies while holding my girls.  Sounds simple, but for me was HEALING! 

We also dyed eggs, played games, and I even made a SIMPLE meal for the family for Easter.  It really wasn't much, but I haven't been able to cook for my family in SO long...that it felt nice.  It helped me feel like I was contributing for a change.  Much of my time is spent needing people to take care of everything...it was nice to have a fleeting moment on the other end.   The girls had a great time finding eggs, playing with their baskets, and being together as a family.  Those moments are precious...and I was grateful to be a part of them.  I must admit, I was exhausted and went to sleep at 6pm.

I can't post about Easter without mentioning how grateful I am for my Savior, Jesus Christ.  I am humbled each time I think about his experience in Gesthemane and the sacrifice he willingly made for each of us.  The pain he felt, I can't even fathom.  He had to experience all of that, alone, so that we can be forgiven and return to live with our Heavenly Father.  He did that out of LOVE for us!  I have felt his comfort and love so much through this trial...and I am grateful for my relationship with my Savior.

Looks like a wonderful Easter. I love hearing how much you appreciate the little things that are so easy to take for granted - movies on the couch, making dinner for our family, etc. It helps me keep my perspective. I'm so glad it was a wonderful day and that you got to spend it with Larry & the girls.

I'm happy had such a wonderful Easter and were able to enjoy the beautiful moments in life. Your girls are so cute. We have a picture slideshow that runs on our TV all the time and Tom recently loaded it with pictures from Cleveland so there are a lot of Aana. It's so cute to see her and Hayden playing all the time. She is such a pretty girl and sounds like she is a real sweetheart!! I hope the fact that you made dinner means the port is starting to hurt less!! I just realized it's been a month since I updated my blog, I better get busy!
