I'm jealous.

I know I shouldn't be.  But I am. 

I'm jealous of all the awesome Easters that I've been reading about in your blogs!

I had high hopes for this Easter Sunday.  I was ready to go to church and take in everything that our awesome Jesus had to reveal through our pastor.  I was excited to see all our littles in their prettiest Easter outfits. 

After church, I was looking forward to spending time with my family, trying out a new recipe to take for our annual family lunch and seeing my Dad!!

I did not get to go to church because I woke up with a migraine.  The kind where I can't move my head and I'm nauseas.  The kind where if I were to go to my neurologist like a good girl, I would have appropriate meds for episodes like that. 

I have a wonderful daughter.  She got up, got ready, picked up my niece and they went to early service and Sunday School.  And thankfully, I can listen to the service via our church's website. 

By the time they got back from Church, I was able to move around and cook up some Green Bean Casserole (sans mushrooms) and Roasted Potatoes (I use Ranch Dressing Mix instead of the onion soup mix, and I also cut up the potatoes much smaller). 

Here's another reason why I'm so jealous.  I didn't take the first picture.  It wasn't for lack of trying though!  As soon as Christen and Jessica got back from church, I shooed them outside to take a picture in their Easter best.  But...  no memory card...  After a trip back inside, insert memory card, shoo the girls BACK outside...   the battery is exhausted...  yeah, so was I!

My brother did happen to get a snapshot of Christen and Jessica...  but of course, it was taken before Christen fixed Jessica's hair...  and he didn't get their shoes in the picture...  brothers...  sigh....   oh well!  They are still cute to me.  :o)

we did make it to two family get togethers and my migraine eventually went away and, you want to know the best part?  I never forgot what Easter is all about.  I may have let my physical ills get the best of me from time to time Sunday, but it always comes back to this: Jesus defied the grave, He rose again.  He's Alive, He's Alive!

Hey, I can see part of Jessica's shoes! ;)
I'm glad in the midst of it all, you remembered the reason for it all.

He is risen!

He knows your heart! I feel ya about the pics, though. I'm a memory collector, and I love to take my girls' pics.

It's where your heart is that matters and it's in the right place it sounds like :)
