I hope you all had a lovely Easter! We certainly did! I know everyone is probably exhausted from Easter so I didn’t want to write too much today!
Earlier last evening my kitchen looked like this!
As I was cleaning up and doing dishes, I thought back on the day. My heart overflowed with gratitude. I was grateful for a beautiful table, abundance of food, friends to share the holiday with, and more importantly a risen Savior. I reflected on our conversations and was amazed at how different each person’s story was, and yet so similar. God working in our lives, redeeming us, changing us.
Before I knew it, the dishes were mostly done.
Today we’ll be pulling ourselves back out of holiday mode. If you are having a hard time getting back into the routine this Monday, remember to be grateful. The mess and exhaustion means you had family and friends to celebrate with. That is a blessing.
Don’t let the let-down after a big Easter weekend give you the Monday blues.
And check out these adorable little chicks my friend made and brought yesterday. Aren’t they cute?
Today I have to deal with the leftover ham, and wash a few pans that didn’t get done last night. But I am still enjoying my Easter centerpiece, and that makes me smile.
What are you doing this Monday after Easter? Is it back to work? A big mess to clean up? Detox for your kids from too much candy?
How was your Easter? I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
