Happy Easter!

Whether or not you celebrate Easter, I want to wish you a happy one.  Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, a season that celebrates life, hope, and growth.  I feel that hope keenly at this time of year as I join with other Christians to focus on and celebrate the resurrection of our Savior.  As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I also look forward to General Conference, a two-day long event that occurs twice a year, once in April and once in October, in which Christ-centered messages are given by leaders of the Church and musical performances are offered by The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square.  For my family, both Easter and Conference come with cherished traditions that bring us together for food, fun, and worship.  So, from my home to yours, I wish you a very happy Easter and Springtime.

I should have posted this video last week since it's about making Holy Week more meaningful, but I've been slacking on Easter prep this year.  Case in point: since I wasn't feeling well after getting my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Good Friday, I let my kids go shopping for their own Easter basket goodies!  Yeah, I'm an awful mom.  Anyway, I wanted to share this beautiful Easter message from Russell M. Nelson, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Enjoy!


  1. Sorry you had a reaction to the vaccine. I hope you are 100% again. Happy Easter!

    1. It wasn't too bad - mild nausea and lightheadedness/headache and a sore arm on the day of the shot - but it was enough that I just wanted to stay home and rest! Grateful to have gotten the shot, though.

      Happy Easter to you, Sam!

  2. Wishing you and yours a Blessed and Happy Easter. God Bless.
    Joan,Marion and Marilyn

    1. Thank you very much! It has been a lovely day spent with my family.

  3. Happy Easter, Susan! Saw my grandson yesterday, for the first time since Christmas, so Easter has been especially wonderful for me. :-)

    1. Yay! That's wonderful news, Cath. I'm so happy you got to see your grandson for Easter :)

  4. Happy Easter, Susan. I hope you had a holy one. :)


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
