Easter is always a holiday filled with family, pastel dresses, and chocolate bunnies. As a child, our Easter Sunday was celebrated by attending morning service followed by a highly anticipated Easter egg hunt. My favorite childhood Easter memory was when I was still living in South Dakota. My grumpy older neighbor, Doc, surprised all of us by hiding Easter eggs throughout our backyard. We had just gotten home from church and walked in on Doc in our backyard, hiding the little pastel eggs all over. I've always assumed that the only reason he was doing it was because his notably nicer wife, Mildred, nagged him to do something nice for the kids. No matter what his motivation, we were all happy to run around and collect all of the eggs and its one of those memories that comes back to me every Easter.
Once I got older and had kids and a family of my own, we kept the Easter egg hunt tradition alive. My two girls would be dressed in their fancy new Easter dresses for church and then we would go straight to my cousin, Glenda's, house. She used to babysit the girls when they were younger and she used to work here at the office so she was always very close with my family. The girls loved running around in their dresses, searching for all of the eggs, and discovering what prizes were hidden inside. Likewise, Glenda always enjoyed sharing our family tradition with us. It was very hard for our family when Glenda died from cancer a few years ago, but she is still in our hearts, celebrating with us every Easter.
This year, my daughter, Megan, her husband, Quincy, and son, Tayvian, are moving into a new home just before Easter. We are planning a much more laid back Easter Sunday. We are bringing dinner to them and dining "al fresco" while we help them clean, organize, and paint the outbuildings. For those of you who don't know, Megan raises goats so they have purchased a nice piece of land for her to continue taking care of her animals. We are all very excited to see the ranch and to help get them all settled in there!
I, as well as all of our agents, would like to wish you and your family a very blessed Easter. May the food be delicious, the eggs well-hidden, and, most importantly, the laughter plentiful!
