Easter Sunday

We spent Easter with my parents-in-law and my grandparents. They live in the same town and have become friends over the years. 🙂

easter giftsSince my mother-in-law is always telling us not to buy candy for her, I decided to go a little non traditional by giving both her and my father-in-law framed photos of their sons & daughters-in-law. I did sneak some super healthy dark chocolate squares into her Easter basket just so there’d be a small treat. Okay, and we got her hot chocolate. But that’s it! Haha! Not a ton of sweets. 🙂

As we sat down to eat our Easter feast I looked to my left at my grandparents and across the table to my in-laws and it just hit me how blessed Christopher and I are to have been born into these families. We are loved and supported. And not just by the people sitting around that table, but just by our families in general. And I am so thankful. Easter is the day we celebrate the fact that the tomb was empty. Jesus is alive. And I’m thankful to be surrounded by family who stand strong in their faith even through the difficult times in life. Because in the end, Jesus wins. And that’s the Gospel truth. 🙂

Love Rach
