For every year of my life (and I think I’ll just keep that number to myself right now) my mom has made me an Easter basket. I have every one of the baskets still. Many of them I use around the house, and some are just decorative and adorn a shelf.
This year I had imagined there would be no basket considering my dad’s passing and all of the governmental crap she’s had to deal with in the last two weeks (don’t get me riled up again…). But, there was indeed a basket. Replete with my favorite Peeps, the obligatory chocolate bunny, and plenty of other chocolate treats.
You know, I think I got lucky in the celestial lottery with my parents. Happy Easter everyone!
