Good Friday morning Company Girls!
Today is a beautiful sunny day in my 'neck of the woods'.....which is an interesting phrase when you think of it......I live near an escarpment but not necessarily a woods...anyways it's a lovely day.
The weekend promises to be busy.....this morning I got up early to drive my mom to get her hair done....normally my dad would do this but for the last few weeks he's had a virus that impacted his inner ear giving him balance issues....so he can't drive. Then, in a little while my hubby and I will go and pick up both parents to drive them to my dad's dialysis.....my sister and her husband have been doing this job for the last few weeks but I was glad to take our turn since hubby is home for the holiday. Tomorrow is our last Financial Peace University class and I promised to make potato salad for the potluck afterward. Then Sunday I plan on doing a roast beef dinner for 18....by Monday I think I shall be in a daze....recovering.....I love having everyone home but it does take it's toll on this old body!
I was thinking about Easter when I was a child yesterday...as I drove home from the Walmart, after spending a small fortune on chocolate for the kids. I don't have memories of a lot of chocolate when I was a kid but I do remember new shoes....and socks.....bought especially for Easter...sometime the shoes were white and sometimes they were black patton......my sister and I would try them on many times before the big day and I just loved the smell....nothing smelt grander then a new pair of shoes. On Easter morning we would eagerly put on our new socks and shoes...still in our pyjamas and clump noisily down the stairs for breakfast! It's the greatest memory! I'm sure it wouldn't mean the same for the kids of today...pity...they miss out on so much!
Well I wish you all a very Happy Easter as we remember the true meaning of Easter...not the chocolate, or the new shoes....not even getting together for a big family dinner .....but of course, the death and resurrection of our Lord...so much He gave for us...so little we are able to do for Him.
