Happy Easter!

Blessings to you all. I pray this Easter Sunday has brought you peace and joy and great memories.

Ron and I decided kind of "last minute" to go eat dinner with Rex, Amy, and Isaiah. Rex marinated a tenderloin and then applied a dry rub to it and smoked it. Oh my goodness! It was spectacular! He also fixed Rosemary potatoes, sauteed fresh asparagus, and we also had fresh broccoli, bread, and pumpkin pie for dessert. Yum... I have lunch tomorrow.

I have much to be thankful for this Easter. As I think back on past years, especially those of my childhood, I see so many "scenes" that play across my mind... Kathy (my sister) trying to get an egg out of a rose bush, Dana (my cousin) pouting on the swing because she hadn't found the "golden egg" (worth a whole dime!), Jerry (my brother) toddling across the yard, trying to pick up eggs and put them in a basket, and dressing up in our new "Sunday best." Each year we always got a new church outfit, complete with hat and gloves. I remember shopping for new clothes and having so much fun finding just the perfect outfit.

My parents weren't much on going to church every week, but they did make sure we went. They went to church in their later years, after Kathy died. I am grateful that my parents made sure we went to church as children. Like Rae, I'm not a "Bible thumper" but I have deep faith and know that without it, these past few years would have been insurmountable.

Thank you to all who read and follow my blog. I appreciate your comments and your support.

Those memories are so very special aren't they? Your dinner sounds wonderful. And yes those new outfits we got were awesome...remember the dresses with the matching coats? The hats were so neat!
