Easter Eggs

But from this earth, this grave, this dust,

My God shall raise me up, I trust. ~Walter Raleigh

We decorated eggs today. As we did, talked about our various family traditions associated with Lent and Easter and about what Christ's death and resurrection actually mean for us. Only one egg was dropped, causing some tears. Luckily, one smart mom had a few substitutes available for free trade.

Then, childish mischief and an interrupting phone call turned bedtime into a less-than-smooth process. Unfortunately, one tired mom doesn't always handle such situations with perfect technique.

And I'm reminded again of why I love (need) this season.
