Easter 2011 ...I have been blessed ...

The day began in a creamy cloak of fog circling the blooms on my cherry tree blossoms. The whole valley was misty like a scene from an English countryside ... the morning doves announced the arrival of our Easter morning for 2011. Ken made his famous homemade banana cream pie and I made Peeps in a next of jelly beans cupcakes and heart shaped cakes for my grandchildren. We dropped off small tokens of love and the Crystal Bowersox poster she signed for Maya, Sabrina and Hannah. We took a couple photos and I am hoping the rain would let up for Tina to finish her barbecue chicken dinner she has planned for her Easter dinner. We then drove over to enjoy Ham and sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, hot rolls and asparagus and a big glass of milk with Cole 4 years old and Morgan 2 years old. Lyndon at 8 months old tasted a few bites of green beans plus his oatmeal cereal with bananas little bits of hot rolls. After our wonderful dinner we all went for a walk down to their community pond and around the block...Cole riding his Spider Man bike and Morgan in her push stroller car and Lyndon in his stroller talking all the way on the walk. This is a very simple way to celebrate a holy day of the Resurrection. Life does not get better... a sense of renewal...the joys of an afternoon with joyful spirits and a wonderful meal prepared and shared by the family I love. I am blessed.

Tomorrow we have a celebration of a dear artist who will be 86 with a dinner with a few close friends. I need to work on my "joy" Inchie for tomorrow. Happy Easter to you all and may we all be blessed in this new season of renewal. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
