No matter what we still had a great Easter. We didn't have a huge meal, or fancy treats. We didn't have the perfect egg hunt and we didn't even all get to go to Mass. The cool thing is that in spite of all this we were all drawn very close to the Cross and then also to the Resurrection. Bagel was sick and going down hill all day on Good Friday. Saturday she was in surgery and then asleep all day on Saturday. We awoke on Sunday, Easter Sunday, with a now again healthy girl. We took special joy in the pleasure of her wonderful precious life as we celebrated the gift of self from Christ that gives us heaven. We had a little heaven on earth on Sunday, in the hospital without the extras. Heaven because we had each other and our friends. Heaven because we know the love of Christ.
