this morning, we enjoyed finding eggs in riverside park with friends from church! i think my kids were mostly just really cold, but they still enjoyed themselves. i get really excited over things like this. i might have gotten a little bit carried away last night at duane reade pharmacy while buying some easter candy and a few new plastic eggs. i ended up coming home with things like those yucky marshmallow peeps shaped like yellow chicks! who buys those things, let alone eats them? they are so gross but also, kind of adorable, right?
i’m so thankful for this easter season. not just for the chance to raid my kids candy stash, but also for what easter represents…life, and new beginnings, as we celebrate that morning so long ago when christ rose from the tomb and for the happiness that brings to me and my family.
happy easter! hope you have a beautiful weekend with your loved ones.
