|Alyssa, Brandon, Dylan and our Marine, Anthony|
This Easter, with Anthony gone, we decided to include him in our "traditional photo" and use his boot camp picture. He is always in our thoughts and prayers and on Easter Sunday, he was a constant on my mind. It's never easy being away from my kids, but this deployment is a tough one on my heart. I know he is in God's hands though...for that I am thankful! There is NO better place to be!
Easter Day was a busy, but blessed one! We had a wonderful service at church, then rushed home to make a salad and go to my hubby's parents house for the family dinner. It was a relaxed visit and we enjoyed hearing stories from Wade's grandmother about her family (her grandparents and parents). Always a favorite of mine....hearing about the lives of family members that lived their lives and died before us. So much to learn from how they lived, I often miss my grandparents for that reason...all of the untold stories that we missed hearing.
I pray you and your families had a wonderful Easter weekend together!
