To be honest, I miss not only the special dinners, but yes, the Easter Egg hunts and getting an Easter basket. We used to color our eggs, put them in our baskets, then leave them on the dining room table. I used to leave either carrots or some lettuce for the Easter Bunny--kids leave cookies and milk for Santa, so it made sense to me to leave lettuce and carrots for the Easter Bunny
. Next morning there would be candy and small gifts in our baskets. One year I got a bunny-shaped candle.
Yesterday at church, while the worship team sang a new song, one of our teens came up and rapped a poem he wrote. I'll post it later for you to enjoy. And I did tell him I was going to post it here. The guy is talented, no question. (I'm useless at cutting and pasting, and I forgot to write it down to put it here. I'll do that later.) Also, during the song, the kids' church, from toddlers to teens, came in waving pennants. It was awesome--simple, yet very moving.
