We had a lovely Easter this year at my Dad’s house. We celebrated with my sister Kayla and her husband Shane, my step-brothers David & Jeremy, their wives and kids, and my dad and his wife Carolyn.

  1. Easter didn’t turn out the way I would have wished this year. I call it New Year’s Day because it’s the most important festival of the Christian year. I was really looking forward to it. I told Jose to wake me at 8 on Resurrection Sunday so I’d have time to heat the oven and put the casserole in before I left for church, so it could cook on its own.

    Well, he did that but–he said, “Anna it’s 8 o’clock and I’ve got a problem–I’m bleeding.” He was, too–a very severe nosebleed! Fortunately I have a lot of experience with them (my mother was prone to nosebleeds when I was a kid) so before my eyes were even open I rolled out of bed saying, “Cold–cold–get some ice on it!” We almost never have icecubes ready but this time thank God, there was a full tray in the freezer, so I was able to get him in a chair with his head back and ice on his nose and a cold compress on the back of his neck. Apparently the doctor had given him a nasal spray that conflicted with some other meds he has! The bleeding stopped soon, but oh my, there was blood all over the bathroom sink, the floor, his clothes and face etc. He kept saying, “I want to brush my teeth!” and I kept saying, “You sit quiet for a bit first!” I can tell he was scared because for once he did as he was told. I was afraid to leave him home alone in case it started again, so I stayed with him. And of course he was in no mood for a special meal, so my festive preparations fell rather flat. No church, no communion, no “Aleluya hymns.” And of course here they don’t do the easter eggs etc. But there–Jesus is still Lord and Easter is still a reminder of His sacrifice for us. And if ever I needed a reminder of being “washed in the blood”–well I guess I had one! 😉 But I guess I get to keep him.

  2. Family is so important. Every moment together is treasured as we all know tomorrow isn’t promised. Looks like you all had a great time enjoying each others company.
