This is the guy, with his serious going to the basket blessing face. He's the guy that makes everything possible. I may get the accolades, but it is his hard work that makes it all possible.
Having our basket of food blessed is a tradition that goes back generations, this starts the Easter celebration for our family.
After the blessing I can't help but feel Easter. That and listening to old Folk Mass Songs on YouTube.
All my years in our Folk Group, the Social Center 7 or the IHMYPC, Immaculate Heart of Mary Young Peoples Choir makes the music of the season the very best way for me to celebrate and pray. I do need some tissues as I listen, so many sweet memories.
Here we are back at the front door where we said goodbye to all our guests.
What a beautiful day we had together. The food was plentiful, the guests in good spirits. All my kids and granddaughter were with us. Oh how I love to hear them talk and laugh together. We were missing our St.Louis family, but FaceTime brought us together. We also missed sweet Emma, dear nephew Greg.
We prayed together before brunch and remembered my dear friend Jean who is ill and needs a break dear Lord. She has been on my mind and in my heart, especially through all of the quiet times, as I cleaned and cooked and before bed each night. Please keep her in your good thoughts and prayers.
Thanks for stopping by and for your kindness and friendship.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
