i hope you all had a wonderful Easter + start to your week! our Easter was wonderful. i am SO thankful for Christ's sacrifice on the cross + His resurrection so that we could be saved. it's because of that sacrifice that i am able to live every day + be a wife and mother, a sister and friend. it's because of that sacrifice that i am able to have hope in Heaven that i will see my daddy again + it's because of that sacrifice that i am reminded of God's love for me + that there is more ahead of this life here on earth, as wonderful as it may be.
abel made the day that much more special, as he does with most days. he ate way too much candy, took the best nap ever + was an egg hunting machine as soon as he figured out what it was all about... the candy INSIDE of the eggs. my nana was in town to make 7 layer salad + my mom, as usual, went above + beyond to make sure everyone had a great day AND an easter basket (that makes 11 easter baskets!!). despite us all having that little empty corner in our hearts for my dad, at the end of the day chris and i both just felt so good. it was a long and wonderful day + he is risen indeed.
