Easter Monday Morning Musings

My beautiful dark-haired daughter and me on Easter
1. First, Easter Vigil was incredible. Our priest is so reverent, so joyful - he makes every liturgy  such a prayerful experience. Plus, we had about 15 people join the Church.

2. Our Easter was lovely. We spent it with the Franciscan Sisters, the Apprentices and their families. First, Mass and then a Polish brunch. Way too much good food!

3. At the brunch, we always take time to share Miracles that have happened over the past year - big and small. One of mine was that one of the Franciscan Sisters who had been in Lowell, MI and then had moved away is now "home!" I was so thrilled to see her!! I didn't know she was back until she walked into Mass. What a joy!

4. This coming weekend, our family will be gathering to celebrate my mom's 90th birthday. Cannot wait to see family and friends, and enjoy the celebration.

5. Spring is tentatively making its way into West Michigan. A bud here, greening grass there, people heading out with only a jacket on...I know Michigan will probably throw one last blast of winter at us, but for now, we remain hopeful.
