We had our annual Easter Egg hunt today and it was tons o fun! It has gotten so big I can't do it alone. This year I asked two of my closest friends to help and they were eager to participate. Jennifer and Melanie and I had a great time planning and putting on our hunt. The kids had a blast as well. My friend Jodi did the Resurrection eggs, the older kids hid eggs, moms got the food ready, and Andy begrudgingly donned the bunny suit. He was not really excited about being the bunny, but he did it for the girls.I can't tell you how much it means to have real people in my life. I have waited so long to find those kinds of friendships and GOD has blessed me with these women and several others. You know you are loved when your friend keeps your children all day then brings them home, and you come in to find her dusting your furniture. I was once again reminded of what life is really about as I watched the kids playing and family and friends hanging out just visiting and laughing.
Everyday God reveals blessings to me. He died for me. He rose! He has also shown me that it is not always convenient to serve him. Thank YOU GOD for putting people in my life who love ME for me. I appreciate and love them so much. Once again HE shows me how to think outside of the right here and now.
I could definitely go on, but I am trying not to drag it out. Here are a few pics from our Happy Day.

I can't stay awake. I will add pics tomorrow. Just wanted to get these thoughts down while they are on my heart.

  1. Hey, was trying to reach you by email, but didn't have one on you. Email me, so we can talk girls gone crafty!

    You are definitely blessed, I have to remark that I too have beautiful thoughtful friends in my life and I thank the Lord that He sent them when He did.
