I may not have given anything up for Lent, but I am still very much looking forward to its end because at the end of Lent, you get Easter.
Today is Good Friday, and I take a moment to appreciate what today means for me, but I’m really looking forward to the celebration on Sunday.
I always loved church as Christmas and Easter. The joy levels multiply exponentially.
As a kid, both holidays meant pretty dresses and fun treats. Most years, Easter also meant spring!
As a grown up, Easter is less about treats (especially since I’ve chosen to forgo the Peeps and jelly beans this year). This year, we are celebrating in the church where my husband grew up and where we got married. It’s always special to go back there. The holiday is a good excuse to spend time with family and look forward to the many good things that this spring will bring.
… I still like the dresses!
