Did the Easter Bunny visit?

Easter is such a special and sacred time for Christians all around the world. It is a time when we reflect on what Jesus did for us on the cross and the power of the resurrection.  It is a time for great rejoicing and celebration. It can also be a time for scoffing down large amounts of chocolate. Was I going to allow my kids to be indulged this year with lots of sugar? I thought about it long and hard. I even debated telling them that the Easter bunny has gone Paleo and since he was feeling so amazing, he has taken himself off for a holiday this year and wouldn’t be visiting.

EasterBut, my 5-year-old still believes in the Easter bunny. So no – I wasn’t going to shatter that for her. She might only have a few more years left of that innocent belief in fairytale creatures. So, they did get a few Easter eggs. I threw a little toy in for both of them too to distract them from the fact that there wasn’t a huge pile of loot at the end of their Easter egg hunt. And you know what? They were perfectly happy and satisfied. It was a win-win situation.

But this post is not about how good or bad you have been with your eating over the Easter weekend. My goal is not about making you feel guilty for all the chocolate and hot cross buns you may have inhaled.  Next week is another week filled with the opportunity to make better choices. Don’t beat yourself up over your indulgences. Enjoy them, put them behind you and move on from there.

My message: Don’t live your life in the shadow of your past.  Look forward with hope and be excited about the possibilities waiting for you just around the corner. Wipe the slate clean. Tomorrow is another brand new day.

Happy Easter everyone and God bless.
