a grandmother's tradition

This is the second year my mom has set out to make a spring dress for all of her granddaughters--well, the walking ones, for that matter. I watched her today as her granddaugthers ran and twirled, found eggs and giggled.  To my daughters, they wore something special, something fancy.  For my mom, it was her heart they wore so confidently and proudly today.

Tomorrow is the day I've looked forward to with the older girls, Caroline and Johanna: a day celebrating the happy news of Christ's resurrection.  How hard it is this day and age to keep it focused and not completely sugary or bunny-filled.  To you I wish you a happy and meaningful day.

Happy Easter!
