Easter Lessons

The weekend did not go as planned.  Highs and lows, joys and sorrows, anticipation and disappointment.

It began with the bunny buns that turned out to look quite different from the internet example.

Small improvements were seen with rising and baking.

The smell of fresh bread, however, was irresistible, and the temptation proved too great for one of my dear ones. She ate nine of them while standing at the counter. Prior to the big dinner.

But in the end I had to admit that it didn't matter.  The shared moment of joy, being together and enjoying a small delight, trumped my own needs and arbitrary expectations.

Today I am thankful for the good things.


  1. A good family story for years to come with the triumph of love and joy! Have a good day.

  2. They look more yummy in your picture! I got hungry just from looking...

  3. They're adorable! When they gobble them up because they're irresistible, take it as a compliment to the food and your cooking. I think it's true that those BIG events each year are approached with such high expectations, they often disappoint. It's good, as you do, to focus on the positive.
