I know that earlier this week I was feeling a bit angsty about the upcoming Easter holiday, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a moment or two of sadness today. However, our actual family gathering was yesterday, a picnic at the lake. And though certainly I missed the loved ones that were absent, it was still a great day. The weather was beautiful, the food abundant, and the company the best. It might’ve been a day early, with some important people missing, but I still think it was just about exactly the way a family holiday should be.
