SLICE #26- Easter Baskets???
I debated whether or not I should even bother to make Easter baskets.
The boys are 20 and 22. They really are a little too old for Easter baskets.
Easter is a Christian holiday.
My boys are saying they don't believe in Christ anymore.
Why should I bother making Easter baskets.
Easter is a family holiday.
My boys don't want to have much to do with me these days. I'm a roof over their head,
the person who goes to the grocery store, the tax preparer, and an occasional ATM.
And that's pretty much it.
And so I debated back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth all morning.
And then I went to the grocery store, and bought chocolate bunnies, and jelly beans, and chocolate eggs, so that I could make Easter baskets.
Because they are my boys. And I love them.
And I wanted them to remember, somewhere,
in the depths of their very being,
that they have have a mom,
and an Abba Father
who loves them infinitely.
