The night before Easter was extremely hard. After making up the girls baskets I just sat and cried! When I put Baylor's basket together I was thinking about how she was going to love her bathing suits and love to going swimming this summer and when I put Bellas basket together I thought about what can I put in here that would hold up against the rain.
Church was beautiful but I started crying the minute I walked in and saw the cross that we all put flowers on and all the butterflies on the walls. Bella was baptized on Easter Sunday when she was 5. Also this was one of her favorite times at church. She loved to put a flower on the cross at church and loved all the beautiful butterflies on the wall to show that we need to rejoice because Jesus is alive and he has risen! After church we went to bring Bella's Easter basket to her and visit. I asked her to come and visit us. When we got home by the pond in front of out house there was a white dove. Very odd to see this bird by our house. Trey went to feed her and she stayed until we left to go to a Easter party. I truly believed that Bella came in her Easter white to visit. I have prayed all week for her to come and see me and I feel like she has been making visits all week.
Thank you Leah and your beautiful family for inviting us to your Easter celebration. We had so much fun and it made the day much better!
