Easter Then and Now

Daily writing prompt
What makes you laugh?

Years ago, when I was recovering from illness and major surgery, and passings of loved ones, the Easter Story gave me hope.  And more so all the time. Simple meals and errands fill me with joy.

These thoughts are from a post on April 7, 2017. Major new challenges were in the future. Simple everyday life continues to be a blessing, with many moments of joy.
