Easter Memories

I think back on Easter memories growing up. My mother always made a big dinner at Easter. My brother and I would come home from church with wonderful smells rolling through the small house where we lived. Homemade biscuits, ham, homemade mashed potatoes, peas, etc. etc etc. 

I think back to the last Easter basket I enjoyed. I was six. My father decided I was too old to receive another basket after six even though my school friends still did many years after mine stopped. Even though Easter isn't about baskets and candy, to a young child it really made an impact to feel left out. 

Now as it was then Easter is a family holiday. I'm thankful to have the memories of many many Easters past.
