This Week...Resurrection, Freedom, and Family Time.

 

Many will be spending time with their family and friends this weekend with observances celebrating resurrection, rebirth, and freedom. It is a time when families will come together over lots of carefully prepared dishes and an abundance of desserts.

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion. Dalai Lama

 

 

My family celebrates Easter so on Sunday I’ll have about 24 (or more) over. There are wee ones in the family so eggs will be hunted.

A man who was completely innocent offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act. Mahatma Gandhi

Whatever your plans are for this weekend, I hope that you will be doing exactly what you want to do with the people you hope to be with.

 

Wishing you a weekend full of joy!

 

happy easter

Kathy,

Happy Easter to you.  I have been fortunate to celebrate two Easters, the Catholic one and the Greek Orthodox one...more chocolate.  I love the Dalai Lama's quote. A

This is a beautiful message for this very special weekend, Kathy. I'm guessing hosting Easter dinner surrounded by family members and little ones hunting eggg sums up the reason you moved back to Houston. Makes perfect sense to me. Sounds like a hoppin good time.

Hi Kathy Streib - First of all, I love those GIFs.  All your pics are wonderful but the flowers are mesmerizing.  

I have to reiterate the sentiments of Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - You have a wonderful family and I am so happy for you. I did all the holidays when I lived in SoCal but had help from my sister and sisters-in-law. 

There is nothing better than spending time with family. Happy Easter!

That's a nice photo collection, Kathy.  I especially like that third picture, with each flower animating independently.  What ap did you use for that?

That is quite a house full! I've had family dinners in the past with that many but it's been a long time. Now, it's usually just the immediate...children and grands. I'm sure you all had a wonderful day!
