Happy Easter

No, not quite right.

Easter isn't about the Bunny, or the Eggs, or the Chocolate. 

It's about none of these things.

The message of Easter has been co-opted as Christmas has.  I guess it's easier to think about a fuzzy little bunny delivering candy to boys and girls than it is to think of one man's death and Resurrection. 

But, well, like they say, "It is what it is".

As you begin this Easter Sunday take a few moments to think about those people who are important to you.  These are the folks who made you who you are.  

Then?   Thank them. 

While I will one day die alone, I never live alone.  I am a conglomeration of everything I have learned, seen, and experienced over the course of my 52 years of 'being'. 

Thanks to my family, my friends, and all those whom I have loved and lost in my life.  Each of you has left your mark upon me.  I am better for having known you.

And, if someone wasn't especially 'nice' to you?  Forgive them. 

Easter is about forgiveness, isn't it? 

Yes, I believe that it is.

I've got to wrestle the family up to get moving for Church, but I leave you with this...    

Happy Easter folks. 



  1. Very nice Moos... Carrie Underwood's singing is a nice way to start the morning..

  4. Excellent post Grumpy. While I will one day die alone, I never live alone. I am a conglomeration of everything I have learned, seen, and experienced over the course of my 52 years of 'being'.
    You have said a mountain full. A beautiful sentiment indeed my friend.
    Peace and blessings to you and your family on the Easter Sunday Grumpy. Happy Easter to all.

    Peace and blessings,


  5. Thanks "D" but I'm not a good enough writer to have put this together, the credit goes to the Cow Guy, your Upstate Neighbor.

    Folks Puma has some interesting comments about Easter's History in American posted today..

    Right under that she has a post that might cause some Easter indigestion at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.. if any-one's at home.

  6. I'm pleased to report that everyone was present and accounted for at Mass this morning. The one hold-out was my middle son who is still at A-School in San Antonio.

    As I looked down the pew to my right, I could have sworn I saw him standing between his two brothers smiling back at me. I miss that boy.

    Have a wonderful Easter folks. Be well.


  7. Very well put Moos. Your son is there...and always will be.

  8. Capt Black Eagle, You got that right. Happy Easter!
