I had a Relief Society luncheon this week. When I told Robyn what we were going to, this is how she appeared a few minutes later:
For Easter we dyed Easter eggs and hunted for them this morning after kids checked out their baskets. We are still missing one egg. Since I hid the eggs just 30 minutes before they came downstairs you would think that couldn't happen but it did. I am sure we will find it sooner of later. This year we tried dying our eggs with oil in the mixture to give them a marbleized look. They turned out very cool. Egg salad sandwiches for breakfast. Taylor ate two whole ones - that is 4 pieces of heavy wheat bread, 4 eggs plus a couple glasses of juice. He really likes Easter. Ham is cooking in the oven and candy filled eggs are waiting downstairs to be hidden outside.
I have always appreciated Easter and what it celebrates but it has hit me more in the past couple of years. It is one thing to be grateful that I personally can live again and be forgiven of my sins thanks to our Savior. But then you are married and have kids and realize you will never be parted and it means a little bit more. And now I just think that someday I get to know and be with a perfect Taylor and Spencer. No disabilities or bi-polarisms in the way. Can't really even imagine it although I try but it makes me tear up every time. Sometimes I wonder how different we will all be without our limitations in the way, whether they be self-imposed or not. So Happy Easter everyone, I am off to score some cadbury eggs.
