Today is a hard day for me. Emotions are at the top of my throat and at any moment I could lose it and cry. I went out to the garage this morning to retrieve the boys easter baskets since today is their egg hunt at school. I wasn’t prepared for what I found when looking for theirs.
You see last year we bought four easter baskets. 3 matching boys ones and one for our sweet girl. This morning I found them all together. We have prayed for Easter for so long to have our kids home and the reality is setting in that it is not happening. 3 more night nights until another holiday and another date that we’ve prayed for passes us by.
I sent two sweet boys to school today with their matching Easter baskets and there are two empty Easter baskets on the table in my living room. They are empty and still have the tags on. Next year hopefully they’ll be used.
I want to find a new date to pray them home by, but honestly I’m scared to pick. Scared for it to pass us by like this one is.
