Easter. I’m a little late. Busy days with wedding and high school graduation plans, scrapbooking last weekend, soccer with S and yard sale season starting! Easter weekend was actually fairly low key which is always good for my RADishes. We had my great nieces over and a friend spent the night with S so we dyed and decorated eggs. We always do Easter baskets on Saturday morning to avoid the Sunday rush.

This year we also made Resurrection Rolls. Or at least tried. I didn’t have crescent rolls so I used regular biscuits rolled out. We didn’t get the marshmallow (Jesus) completely enclosed so when the rolls were done baking the kids said Jesus literally “rolled” out of the tomb!
These days Sundays are so much different than in years past. Rachel goes to church in Winston with her fiance, who is the worship pastor. Joshua goes to our old church and M and S go with us to Daystar, our new church. Easter Sundays used to consist of racing around getting dressed in our finery and taking pictures on the front lawn among the azaleas and blooming tulips. This year we came home from church and took pictures with M and S. Later that afternoon we took pictures with the whole family. My niece and family are back in town so they add to the fun and adventure! I have the feeling there will always be little ones in our home, in one way or another.
I have absolutely no desire to start over with a baby or young child. Or even an older one. I feel completely invested in our four, still hoping for healing for B. Grandkids will come soon enough and I can get my baby fix. For Tim and I our lives are approaching a new season. One where the relationships change with two adults no longer living in our home. M and S are getting older and there are signs of progress and maturity, mostly in S. But there is a glimmer of hope for M. Enough to keep me holding on and continuing to invest in his life.
It feels like spring in my heart. Newness. Hope. Beauty.
