Wake to sunshine,
Watch Joel Osteen - God finishes what he starts.
Go down stairs,
Gather ingredients on kitchen table,
Turn on Sunday Morning.
Mix butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, bake - Cake.
Daughter tip toes into kitchen, hug, talk, laugh,
Mix sweet potatoes, butter, sugar, eggs, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, pour into crusts, bake - Pie.
Fry Amish bacon (yes Sybil, Amish), brew Guatemalan coffee,
Another daughter joins in, talk, laugh,
Eat corner of cherry turnover - Joy.
Shower, makeup, dress, hair, change purses, chat with son,
Pull out of drive way, watch bird pull worm from lawn - Breakfast.
Church, preaching, singing, "I Am", the Lord's Supper,
Kiss and hug friends, take pictures, leave.
Back home, house smells great
Change clothes, update blog, birds sing,
Look out window, notice bright green budding of willow tree,
Wrap food, load in cars, leave for Tee's - Finally.
Mother, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, friends,
Bless food, eat, laugh, eat, laugh some more,
Stories of Easters past - Love.
Sneak another piece of pie,
Relax, reflect - Grateful!
