I've really been trying to take time out today and yesterday to remember Jesus' suffering and death on the cross. We had a wonderful Good Friday service last night and just took time to worship and praise God for His sacrifice. My best friend, Tiffany, went with me and I think she really liked it. I hope so. Everyone kept asking us if we were sisters. She said, "I should just get a sign that says 'no we're not sisters'!!" She's so funny.
Today we went shopping. I have tried in vain to find a new outfit for Easter. I just can't seem to find anything that looks right. I have gained about 10 lbs. since last Summer and I must lose it and more besides! My sister (my real sister, LOL) is on Weight Watchers and I think I'm going to count points with her without signing up with WW. She's going to tell me how many points I can have and such. I guess I'll wear last year's Easter outfit because I've only worn it once since so no one will notice. I didn't go to church last Easter, Caroline was sick with a horrible cold. Remember how cold it was? Our weather is so crazy - now it's almost 90 here!
I just tucked my girlie in to sleep - now I am going to go downstairs and put her Easter basket together. It is one of my favorite things to do all year. I just love placing and arranging everything and tying it all up with a big bow and cellophane. I can't wait to see her face when she sees that I got her a Swift Heart Rabbit - the ONLY original Care Bear Cousin she doesn't have!
I hope you have a happy Easter and take a moment to remember our Savior. I will post pictures of Caroline in her beautiful dress tomorrow and her basket. Take care all!
