Happy Easter!

Sunday, April 08, 2012

My mom decided that she felt ok to go the Easter breakfast at church this morning, so we went. It was nice, and they also had an Easter egg hunt outside for the kids. The weather is sunny today and not too cold, but very windy. The service was nice too, a little bit bigger crowd today, a few families had brought relatives with them that were visiting from out of town for the holiday.

About 2-3 weeks ago, they had sign up sheets to buy tulips, hyacinths, or lilies to decorate the alter today, in memory or in honor of someone. They were $6 each. I bought tulips in memory of my dad. We could take them home after the service. Mine were red ones, and there were 5 flowers on the plant. Sometime during the next couple of weeks, some friends are going to help me plant them at the cemetery at my dad's grave. I'll need some help with the digging, since with my pain issues it's kind of hard for me to bend over or squat on the ground.

I was tired and kind of hurting all over by the time I got home today, but I'm glad I went to church today. Started feeling better after getting into pjs and taking a pain pill. The pain pill helped enough that I was able to do a stability ball workout late this afternoon.

    What a nice tribute to take the tulips and plant them at your dad's grave. I was worrying about your cats eating the flowers but this is not only a lovely gesture but also will keep the cats from them.

    Sounds like you still had a wonderful day even with the aches and pains. Glad you and your mom enjoyed the breakfast and service along with the time together. We had our sunrise service outside and luckily the wind died down during the night so it was perfect weather.
