1st Easter and Blessings

China doesn't celebrate Easter so I just have to share with you that this is going to be a really fun Easter this year in our house. I have explained the meaning of Easter and then the explanation of the Easter Bunny to Sunshine {who is 15 and ummm LOVES chocolate!} and I asked her if she would like to experience it the way we do and she thought it would be fun. I've picked up a few little things for her, and I plan on doing the egg hunt so it should be a lot of fun! I'm looking forward to it!

I'd rather loose count while counting my blessings, than loose my blessings counting my troubles. -anonymous

In the back there is a card from Half the Sky dedicated to our daughter on behalf of my sister who made a donation to them last month as a gift to me. I just love the picture on the front. Thank you so much Lori.
To the left is a "Plant a friendship"card. It's a piece of organic paper with the seeds embedded into it, you just plant it in a small pot of soil and water! To the right of it is a Willow Tree angel for HOPE! It couldn't have been given to me at a better time as it was just before Church on Sunday and I was going to be interviewed by our pastor about something (a future post). Both of these gifts were given to me by a very very sweet and dear friend. Thanks Dara! You mean the world to me.
Then to the right is a sweet little monogrammed card and a wonderful Mary Engelbriete bookmark which I adore sent by ours truly
3D. Thank you so much Doris I love it! She said when she seen the bookmark she thought of me! What a surprise it was to see in my mail box this morning! So there you have it blessings galore!

I'm still arguing with my husband about giving my son an easter since he's not the holiday kind of person.
