My daughter’s obsessed with rabbits.
So it should come as no surprise that Easter is her very favourite holiday. Stores that she would normally take no interest in are packed full of rabbit clothes, rabbit knick-knacks, rabbit pictures — rabbit everything! Add to that the chocolate, the treats, the family celebrations, and the high probability someone will give her a new stuffed rabbit, and she couldn’t be happier.
And then yesterday she got sick. Headache, nausea, stomach pain, fatigue. Nothing fun. The poor dear’s curled up on the couch whimpering on her favourite day of the year.
So we’re having a quiet Easter this year. I’m resting at home with my family, comforting my daughter, trying to prevent my son from gorging himself on chocolate, and tidying up the house.
But, we’re taking some time out of our (not) busy day to say thanks.
And thanks again.
Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, and however you celebrate, we’d like to take the time to wish you a Happy Easter. (Or as my daughter would say if she was feeling better: “HOPPY Easter! BOING BOING!”).
For those of you who don’t celebrate Easter, we’d like to wish you a wonderful day.
All the best!
Snow is falling, lights are twinkling, there’s a chill in the air, and a pile of torn up gift wrap all over my floor. My kids are running around the house testing out new toys, reading new books, playing new video games, and shrieking in glee over the letter Santa left them last night.
It’s Christmas morning.
Some people say this is a magic time of year. A time for reaching out to loved ones and old friends. A time for reflection. For gratefulness. For spreading joy and cheer. For some people it’s a time of faith and prayers. For others it’s just another day. For me it’s always been about family.
It’s that one time of year we always make the time to visit our extended family, even though we don’t really have the time. It’s the time we share meals, and hugs, and showers gifts on the kids. It’s the time to say ‘I love you,’ and to tell your friends and family how much you appreciate them.
And so, in spirit of the holidays, we here at d20diaries would like to take the time to say to each and every one of you: thank you.
Thank you for your time and your attention. Thank you for your feedback and kind words. Thank you, thank you, and a thousand more times, thank you. It means the world to us that so many of you choose to spend some of your precious time with us.
Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukah! Happy Kwanzaa! Happy Yule! Happy Holidays! And if you’re currently celebrating a holiday I haven’t mentioned, then happy that, too!
We wish you all the best today, tomorrow, and every day afterwards.
