He is risen! Certainly takes on a richer meaning.
We gathered as a family two times on Easter Sunday. The first time was to say goodbye to Daddy as his body gave up the fight with Pulmonary Fibrosis during the wee hours of the morning. Mom called us and my sister, brother-in-law, Daddy's two sisters and their spouses, close family friends, Mike, and I gathered to support her. Then, my sister's family and my family gathered at lunchtime to share a delicious meal and have a traditional egg hunt for the little folks. We each contributed side dishes and Mom's lifelong friends, Miss Mamie and Mr. Brent Sanders had delivered a ham for us to enjoy just a couple of days before.
The quicker you move...the more you get!
Easter is for celebrating life and that is just what we did in our family as we gathered together celebrating twice!
