Dear Daughters ,
Once a sense of urgency takes root in my thinking,
you know it is hard to ignore.
After a wonderful trip with family and friends
to Round Top Easter weekend,
doing one of my all-time favorite things (exploring with you)
I felt dissatisfied and
full of motherly wants.
Yes, I was with you all,
and yes the sight of the three of you walking in front of me
at Warrenton made me smile,
both inside and out-
I came home wanting more.
Here are my wants:
Even though we all live apart,
*I want Easter to be about Easter.
*I want us to ALL go to church together.
*I want us to ALL be together.
*I want to set a beautiful table.
*I want to plan an Easter Sunday menu for weeks ahead of time.
*I want to see your new Easter dress.
And so in the dramatic fashion I am prone to use-
we must all beware of the alternate plan,
the easier way,
the let’s do this instead.
Just a thought-
