Off to Church My sister Ellen and Me

Easter Sunday means different things to different people. When I was young it was a day for dressing up and attending church. My sister and I had our little purses, coats, and Easter bonnets so we looked just right. I loved the pomp and circumstance surrounding church. Unfortunately, I grew up and have separated from the church since I don’t agree with their politics though that’s neither here nor there now in the scheme of things, I believe what I believe and am happy and spiritual in my own way. I still speak to God when and where I want.

I am quite happy, though that the series “The Bible” has been such a great success story as it winds up tonight, one of the most Holy days for Christians. I am also happy that “Duck Dynasty” on A&E shows the family sitting down at the end together sharing a meal and saying a prayer. In this day and age people need something to believe in greater than themselves and if this gives people solace I’m all for it. I’m more upset when people want to deny people their right to religious freedom. Off my soapbox, on to the fun stuff…….

We had some annual family traditions in my house as I grew up and as I married and we also had our own.

It was a day for sweets and treats. The Easter egg hunt was also special. In my little family I got to be the Easter Bunny and always hid the eggs and bought candy and jelly beans for the basket. In recent years I’ve finally decided it was time to give up the Easter baskets and the hiding of eggs, my boys are old enough to let it go.

My husband broke down and bought them both one candy treat today…I don’t think he could totally let it go. I am done……the hiding was over for me, they are both in their 20’s. But, they did ask……where are the eggs? Hoping I still hid them, they enjoy the hunt and the brotherly competition. Your kids never fully grow up……..I hope you have a wonderful day……whatever Easter means to you maybe we can remember it is a special day.
