It was a busy week for us. We had a big family holiday dinner on Saturday and then spent time with out-of-town guests during the rest of the week. Unfortunately, I had little time to read (although I am reading a terrific ARC by Robert Bailey) and no time to write. I did spend some time researching the true meaning of Easter and Passover, however, and learned a bit about both celebrations. I recommend reading “The Five Most Important Things To Know About Passover,” at Aish.com, and “What is Easter: Understanding the History and Symbols” by Susan E. Richardson. Both are short and informative articles about these very meaningful Holidays.
As I sat around our Seder table, sharing food, stories and laughter with family and friends, I once again realized what should and does take priority in my life. Our country might be in political shambles, the state that I live in might lean politically away from things that I believe in, and even my wonderful new neighborhood might present more political problems and agendas than I had anticipated, but at the end of the day I get to rely on my family and friends, and isn’t that what really matters after all.
So I spent “me time” this week, and I hope that all of you did the same. I will be back next week with my blog and reviews as we all begin a wonderful spring season.
