Today, TLO, LB, and Beloved went to MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) where they talked about Easter and the death of Jesus. Tonight, after LB went to bed, Beloved was at church and TLO and I talked about our days. It made me happy (and a little nervous) to listen to her tell me the story of Easter and made me excited to hear different stories (from the Bible or otherwise) from her perspective. I love my kids.
This morning my daughter and I were driving in the car and I remembered that it was an important day for my dad. There was an issue that he was very concerned about and he had worked tirelessly to get the issue on his town's ballot and today the votes would be tallied. I thought I should say a prayer for him.Read More
