He is Risen!
It doesn't matter to me if you believe or not. (okay..I kind of hope you do) I believe, I feel it and this weekend was truly magnificent for me because of that belief. My comfort is found within his presence in my life. I'm Greek Orthodox and our Easter is never ever the same day as the Western Christian Easter. This year, it was!
My family celebrated with food and sugar. Indeed his is Risen! We gathered together and as a result, I got about 10 different variations of this statement 'oh wow cole you look so good! How much weight have you lost now?' It was FANTASTIC. I felt happy and proud, and although YES I still have 20lbs to go, & the scale didn't budge again this week, my family made me feel as if I've already reached my goal. It was rare, but I felt comfortable, proud and happy.
We had fun cooking super good food and I made some bunny peep pops for my nephews. Yes, bunny peep pops :D They are marshmallows covered in white and milk chocolate with sprinkles. Cute & made with love = hard to go wrong.
I've got a ton of photos of food and sugar from the wonderful weekend, that for me was FULL of acceptance and love. Only partly in the form of sugar.
