Like many of you, we are home. All of my kids are at their homes…well Karl’s here but he lives with me.
We typically don’t get together on Easter…we typically do Palm Sunday instead so the kids can be with the “other side of the family” on Easter. We started that a long time ago so the kids didn’t feel rushed when they came to visit us and get together.
As much as I’m missing the kids, I’m missing church more. The wonderful Easter songs are playing in my head and I’m trying to sing along. I’m trying not to think about COVID-19. I promised myself today that I would not look at the computer or watch the news on any updates about it. I want to be as joyful as I can…that’s hard to do though. We’re expecting snow here overnight. I hate snow in April…and now it’s a little like insult to injury…but I’m forging ahead that sticking with JOY!
For me, Easter is my favorite religious event. Everyone in church is so happy..the Easter lilies look so pretty…and of course the religious side of things being comforted knowing that new life can be ours.
I can’t help but reflect on last year at this time….
Here we all were. Kramer was still with us….we didn’t have Baby Jasper or Baby Lilly. Karl is was living in Texas. Who knew so much could change in a year?
One of my happiest things…Lucy doesn’t hate me anymore. I always knew she’d come around but I’m so happy to see she actually did. Before Lilly was born I made a goal to try to get to their house more often but then came COVID-19. We’ll have to see what happens with that.
We’re going to facetime sometime today…I am thankful for that….and super thankful that someday, I’ll see Kramer again. Easter was his favorite too…
