...the long journey of a little basket

This is a photo of my grandmother, my sister and my mother taken on a long ago Easter Sunday. My mother is holding a little wicker basket...a well loved...well traveled humble, little basket.

A few years later, my sister and I on another Easter Sunday...the little basket has been passed to me.

Years ago, with my own little girl...the humble wicker basket celebrates another Easter Sunday.

Ready and waiting...


Thank you so much to all of you who left such warm and kind comments on my last post. I cannot tell you how much I loved hearing the stories you shared...about your kids, "special" playmates, family members, friends...I so appreciate the time you took to share your experiences...and your kind words. I'll come back to them often...on hard days...and they will again, make me smile. Thank you.


God's blessings to you all on this holiest of weeks!

Enjoy the day,
