I will go to Easter dinner with my Catholic family because my grandmother would like me to celebrate with her. And I will gladly! Easter is a time for me to celebrate as humans have for 10s of 1000s of years - to celebrate the rebirth of the earth and the bloom of life by being with friends and family and eating a meal together!
I am not sure what they are serving for dinner... if it is lasagna and there are no other main entree options, I will have the smallest of pieces. But most of my food is going to be veggies! I am allowing myself three pieces of "Grandma" chocolate (she always have Dove candies out!) and a macaroon for dessert. But that's my treat for the celebration day.
They asked me to bring desserts. I got macaroons for myself (coconut and egg based!) and an apple crumble and cinnamon cake for the rest of the family. I could have gone the fruit route, but that wouldn't have gone over well with my family!!
Then I will go watch Game of Thrones with friends (and pawn off the leftover desserts on them so that they don't come home with me!)
Chris and I went for a hike this morning to do our own earth-rebirth celebration! Like I said... I do believe it is a miracle I am here. I am deeply, deeply moved by the beauty of this world.
|Koda ended the hike in a mud puddle.. of course!|
Namaste, enjoy your holiday if you celebrate! Be good to yourselves, each other and this earth <3
