Abbie and her “bubby”, Kyle
Yesterday was just a good, good day. I don’t know how many times Ray and I said that to each other, but it felt new and true each time. The realization that this is yet another last — the last Easter I will have all my children with me, made it very sweet. Church was wonderful, and then we went to brunch where they had a special room set aside just for us. Quiet and most importantly, air-conditioned.
Abbie’s brothers humored me as I led them to the Easter Bunny so I could have a picture with all the kids in it. Abbie was a little upset that we’d gotten there too late for the egg hunt. Actually, we were eating when the announcement for the egg hunt for 4-7 year olds rang out. She jumped in her stroller and looked at me. I felt a little sad for her, but told myself it was too hot and sunny anyway. Besides, the Easter Bunny had given each of the kids a basket, so naturally Abbie ended up with all of them!
She did marvelously, which is always a praise during a long outing. I don’t know how she does it, but she seems to grow more beautiful each day. We are blessed.
The contents of my heart, all in one picture
