On Wednesday Daniel's parents came over for dinner and to take him with them for a couple of nights. That afternoon we all went to the local library to get some holiday reading supplies.
For Easter I decorate a Christmas cake I made last year. It was pretty good!
At mass on Sunday morning the priest was talking of praying for those 'who need help with their 'diction'' according to the 'extra child in his 40s that I took to mass ( :D) and about praying for light upon our darkness - be our darkness sorrow, depression, addiction etc. He mentioned that even when it is hard to see that light - that it is there...the Light of Christ. Now I have had a really enjoyable but busy couple of weeks and on Sat I did end up in tears feeling totally overwhelmed with keeping up with everything... but standing in the stalls listening to Fr's words - Hannah leaning against me - I had to smile... she is the light God gave to me, and she isn't difficult to 'see' at all - I feel so very very blessed to have her in my life. She is my perspective and centres me in a way that I am still learning about. She IS light.
We minded our friends' puppy - and got to take her for a couple of walks too. Lunch was at my inlaws - another farewell to the family heading off to WA this week. It was lovely to spend time together. Today was Easter Monday and we were quite lazy although Phil did take the kids out to wash the car and I made a rather yummy fish pie for dinner...
