My mommy's birthday, Easter Vigil Mass (my possible favorite amongst all Catholic masses, when done right) and Easter itself. All provided ample opportunity for me to find beauty in the days...and here they are.
1. My mommy laughing, crying, smiling and otherwise truly enjoying her birthday week and her actual birthday-day. She was beautiful and happy and very, very loved. And we all got cake.
2. Steak, lots and lots of sugar, a walk with the dogs and two and half hours watching Matt Damon, Leo and Mark Wahlberg...in other words: Easter Sunday was a blast.
3. Saying we love each other with the lights on, not on a text message, and much, much earlier than the first time at about 2 a.m. Saying it into each other's eyes, when we can actually see each other's eyes, somehow makes it seem oh so much more real.
