Easter was such a treat for our family this year. I’ll be honest I haven’t always been an Easter fan. I hate thinking about mean people crucifing Jesus and all that he went through. It actually has always bothered me, from the first time I watched the crucifixion portrayal when I was little.
But now, I choose to focus on the beauty of Easter, the gift of Easter, & why Jesus went through hard things. And because of Easter we can live again after death, & for that reason I changed my focus on Easter & I have grown a deeper love & appreciation for it.
For Easter Hudson got a Mtn. Bike. His cousins are in town from Jersey and left Easter night for Moab. Where they will be hiking, going to waterfalls, walking through rivers, etc.
Hudson really wanted to go. I told my husband the perfect scenario would be for me to have the baby Easter afternoon, and then he and the kids could all go down to Moab while the new baby and I recover in the hospital. Well that didn’t happen, and Dallin felt too guilty leaving me behind. But we still had a 5 year old who was longing to go with his cousins.
I let him go, and we stayed behind. I was very emotional about it. But I am so glad he went. Hudson is having so much fun and is in really good hands. And besides saying goodbye I have just felt peace. I can’t wait to see him again and to hear about all his adventures!
