Easter Obsession

7th grade, during Mrs. Kane's English class, she asked us students, one at a time, what our favorite season was. When she asked me, I said, "every season is my favorite when it arrives". She told me that made me a true romantic. Now, all these years later I am reminded of that afternoon, because I am SO excited about Easter that it is currently my favorite holiday & time of year. Things haven't changed that much since 7th grade - last month, Valentine's was my favorite holiday, and a couple of months before that, it was Christmas. However, this year is a little out of control. My apartment looks like I am housing the Easter Bunny himself. I have peeps, Easter buckets overflowing with fun presents, fuzzy little chicks, plastic eggs filled with goodies, silk flowers to decorate these goodies in their baskets, old, victorian-themed eggs, yellow and green ribbon, little grape-vine nests waiting to be filled with little chocolates, yellow artificial grass, green edible grass, miniature gum balls shaped like eggs in miniature little egg cartons, plastic peep-shaped containers, victorian-themed Easter cards, jelly beans, gift tags with bunnies, and oh so much more.

This is for you Sweetcakes!

I am currently reading Life is a Verb by Pati Digh and I keep going back to page 12 to read & re-read this poem.
I can't exactly put my finger on what calls me to come back to this page over & over. Maybe it's the novel idea (novel to me) that God is a laid-back woman who calls people sweetcakes & is an encourager of life. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it half as much as I do.

In looking for this poem online, I found this great site.
