I enjoy family traditions. Easter is our holiday to host! I love having everyone (both sides of the family) in our home eating our food, but the afternoon moves entirely too fast. Our family arrives and then all too soon (it seems) they were leaving.
My 85 year old grandfather (who scored a hole-in-one on the golf course this past week) told my parents on the drive to Dallas that he cannot believe he's 85 years old. To him it seems like recently he turned 60, and then all the sudden he's 85 years old. The key takeaway from my grandfather's experience is to enjoy the moment because life happens quickly.
I'm really enjoying the many moments with our nieces, they are at a very fun age, and I'm hopeful that next Easter we will give them cousins!
