a slow and simple easter

With every season comes a sense of hope and re-connection for me. I have found so much comfort knowing that with every season and every holiday,
there is more meaning the older the kids get. This year is going to look a little different for us, as Joe will be working, and we are in the midst of this quarantine. Such a weird time, yet i feel so connected with the simple joys that easter brings. We don’t plan to do much but be together as a family without much electronics and tv. It may not be much, but this may be our best Easter yet.

This year we are recycling old toys and adding new books to our collection. We don’t go all out for easter baskets, but they all seem to have great meaning. We won’t be doing a huge bbq or a large egg hunt. But we will praise and worship our Jesus and the meaning behind this special holiday. We will spend our time in the kithen and around the table, and maybe add in a few fun easter crafts to our day as well.

There really is something about slowing down that makes you appreciate what’s around you. 2020 has been a year of staying still and remembering that there is a lot to be thankful for during this season.
