HEARTFELT EASTER STORY


Basically my Easter Sunday was the same as any other day here on the "ranch"!!!!
I was alone all day and worked on different projects, and just enjoyed the quiet!!!

I was on the phone around 7 pm when there was a knock on the door and I told them to come in--thinking it was Little sister--but I happened to look up and there stood daughter Mary--Hung up the phone quick--and then daughter Mary hands me this---
And then she tells me it is from her mother--my Mary!!!
I have to say I am in total shock---here is a "woman" who just is so sick--yet she takes the time and energy to ask family to go and fetch some chocolate easter bunnies for a couple of her friends--(notice too that it is dark chocolate!!!!!)
After she left--I just sat there--stunned---there is no other word for how I felt at that moment--except--stunned--then "sad and disappointed" in myself!!!!
I mean here I am still able to get around--at least most days--and did I do anything for anyone this Easter---NO--except a couple Easter emails--I did nothing--sent out no cards--bought no gifts or candy--in fact--I did not even decorate again--I have had the Easter tote down from the closet  shelf for over two weeks--and that is where it sat!!!!
*************************
I had to get groceries this morning--but this afternoon I called to see if I could go down and see my Mary--and she had the girls laughing and so down I went--with all the Easter Jokes I had--and we had alot more laughter--
Mary got some more flowers---
This vase has a cute pink bunny tryin to climb up the vase to "smell" the flowers!!!
Daughter Mary is the one standing up and Niki is a granddaughter that is here for Easter Break and is a school teacher in NC.
And this is Mary giving her other granddaughter-Val a big hug---

AND--yes-- I got me some more hugs, and "Iove yous" before I left---
Blogging friends--this woman is one amazing human being---how much "richer" she has made my life!!!   No matter whether it is in person or over the phone or as you are leaving--and no matter how many times she has already said "I love you" she says it again and again and she means it---in fact I actually get hugs from all her family--what a blessing!

I have some quilt news too--but am putting all that over on my di-workbaskettimecard.blogspot.com/
so pop over there and we will continue the visit---this post is just for Mary tonight!!

And Thanks to all of you for your prayers, thoughts, love, and the those who took time to vote for the Sunny Bunny quilt--
Hugs to all--Di
