I woke up this morning, bright and early at 7:00 a.m to Brent's handsome beaming face. I had put out a homemade card and a present (Dallas Cowboys tie) the Easter Bunny left for him on the kitchen table, so I thought his enthusiasm was stemming from that. But in reality, Brent tells me that the easter bunny came last night and hid 24 eggs all around the house. (I guess Peter Cottontail is doing favors for those who live where there is still 2 feet of snow on the ground in April.) Anyway, it was probably the sweetest thing he could have done for me. We share the enthusiasm for life in general and giving to others rather than receiving. The fact that he took the time, came over early, hid the eggs, and just made the day so special for me, means so so much. But they again, he makes every day special.
After the hunt, we dyed our eggs, needless to say, I got to dye a yellow easter egg all by myself. Then made Easter Bunny Pancakes for breakfast. Then played racket ball (our favorite hobby right now) and then took the boys for a nice long walk, came home, and as we speak, Brent is reading his book as I finish this. Life is Good.
Happy Easter everyone.
And just like every other holiday, let's remember the true meaning behind it.
