See that basket of stuff?
That was me. At the grocery store. Today. Yes, today. Getting Easter basket stuff.
And I am struck by the change that has occurred over the years. I used to be that mom who actually took TIME to think about making those baskets special. My kids received things like cross necklaces and Bibles. And fun stuff like bubbles and sidewalk chalk and Nerf footballs.
And then I had more kids and less time and things just kept going downhill a bit more and a bit more until they were just getting a group gift like a movie and individual fun candy.
And here I am today. At the grocery store. Getting the remnants of what is left on the shelf. Gatorade, sunflower seeds, popcorn, a chocolate bunny. Just food. No toys. No movies. No gifts.
I have become lame.
We haven't even dyed Easter eggs. Yet.
Regardless, Easter will be the celebration of new beginnings. Resurrection. Rebirth. Renewal.
Happy Easter to you and yours! May your day be filled with all that you hold dear and the promise of life to come!
