One of the first gift’s our darling DIL (daughter in love) gave J. was a piñata for his birthday. This is the girl who brought from her family to ours the tradition of hats and party bead necklaces to punctuate a celebration, so no surprise when she shared this text from her much-loved Aunt Michelle:
“Can’t wait to have our family all together!!!
Sat. April 16
*Eggstreme egg hunt at 11:00
*Mimosas and memories
*Eggcellent egg coloring
*Foxy’s favorites foods and Easter eggstras
*Celebration cake and papa’s 88th Birthday
*Eggciting decorations for bikes strollers and wagons
*Bring your baskets and bonnets for the parade to the enchanted forest
Easter bunny is hopping everyone can be here!
It’s going to be a lot of pun!!!”
I believe families are stitched together one memory at a time so Aunt Michelle’s eggstraordinary care make her my Easter hero. Behind the fun for everyone 8 months to 88, the loving remembrance of a grandmother—Foxy—who just passed, and the sure-to-be boisterous celebration of Grandpa Skip, is her heart of service and sacrifice.
And that is the story of Easter.
