Man. Easter was magical today. Not only did I enjoy seeing my little bunnies running around but I felt very blessed to be with my family and share a special conversation with some of my friends.
I remember Easter with Kingston 3 years ago. He was 14 months old and LOVED hunting for eggs. I was overweight by 100 lbs and I was very unfit and unhealthy. We were expecting Leo in June not knowing that in just under two weeks I would go from low to lower.
I was sad for getting to a place that felt like there was no return.
Easter bring back so many memories for me- not typically that fond. I despise the copious amounts of chocolate that is consumed but mostly I hate that I am still a consumer. Easter for me is that defining moment- am I keeping my promise to baby Leo. Am I taking care of myself. My whole self?
Today I could have done much better. Looking back over the last three years I am myself overwhelemed with the growth not just in myself but in my family, my career, our organization, and well- to be honest the growth of this hair is driving me crazy.
Who am I today? This Easter. Is Jesus died so I could be saved what am I doing right now to honor him. I believe that the first thing is I realize everyday I have a choice to take care of myself. I have to get better. I have to make better choices for myself.
