This year will be extra special in celebrating Easter. Not only that we are celebrating the real sense of Jesus’ resurrection; we, my family that is, will be celebrating our Mother’s 13th year of her death anniversary. And it falls on Easter!
Being a Catholic, we are Easter People. We celebrate death filled with hope that we will be resurrected and finally be where we are supposed to be; with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit; and with all the Saints and choirs of Angels.
Sister #5 asked me to write something about Mother. As much as I want to, Sister #2 mentioned that she wants to write about her journey and Mother. With that thought in mind, I declined because I don’t want to steal my sister’s thunder.
Instead, I compiled some pictures and memorabilia that I can find for the family to look at. This is a good place for safekeeping for now because my notes are all over the place and I tend to throw or give away pictures. Maybe, just maybe, I will gradually write something about this.
My readers, I wish you ALL a Blessed Easter and here are some of the ways of the Easter People. If you are not a Catholic, replace the last item according to your belief system.
- Cling to the people who love you
- Remember who you are
- Don’t wait for the other shoe to drop
- Bring joy to the world
- Breathe in the Holy Spirit
