"Clean out anger, hatred, jealousy, and self doubt. If you need to
apologize, bit the bullet and do it. If you're still angry and waiting on
an apology from someone who won't or can't give you one, decide to let it
go. It's not contributing to your life - in fact it's contaminating it -
so is needs to go to the junk heap at the curb. Only then can you put
something positive in it's place. Make some room for happiness."

Saturday Nicole and I did the MS 5K on our fabulous friend Cathy's team. We were thrilled that the rain held off until the walk was over - I was thrilled that I regained my ability to move my legs. (see Wednesday) The crowd was HUGE - it was great to see such a good turnout on a cold, stormy day. The picture doesn't do it justice - there were hundreds of people - maybe more than a thousand.
Right after that Michelle, her kids and my parents came over for an Easter egg hunt and for lunch. I was worried that we were going to have an indoor hunt - but once again the weather held off. The bizarre thing was later when the kids were jumping on the trampoline in the back, Michelle and I saw it pouring in the front - the cloud break was right over the house - no rain in back - but pouring in the front.
Yea! Spring is coming - I just hope the snow on Wednesday won't smash my daffodils!
And today - Easter Sunday - my girls looked rather smashing in their Easter finery...
It is my month to lead the music in primary. I thought a good "wiggle song" would be the following:
Sung to the tune of "Battle Hymn of the Republic" there are hand motions - but that's unimportant for the story.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his ear, little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his ear, Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his ear so he flicked it and it flew away.
Me: Now what body part should we pick - where should the fly go?
Child 1: The fly should go to the store!
Me: Okay - but how about a body part - like maybe your mouth?
Child 2: I don't want a fly on my mouth, they have germs, they make you sick.
Me: Well we could pretend it's something else flying around...
Child 2: Like a dragon?
Me: How about a butterfly?
Child 3: I like fairies!
Me: Fairies are cool - okay let's sing our mouth this time.
I start singing..
Child 2: She put a fly on her mouth...gross.
So that didn't go so well. But I did like when someone showed a painting of The Last Supper one of the 3 year olds said "I know what that is. It's The Last Dinner!"
My parents came over for Easter dinner
