Of course, the reason for the extended weekend is that Sunday is Easter, which means that today is Good Friday.
It is on this day that we observe the death of Jesus. I placed an out-of-office reply on my email, and let my calls go to voice mail. Today is a quiet day - a day of reflection and introspection. A day to marvel the love of a man that would give his life for a principle - to teach us all the lesson of sacrifice, and the meaning of unconditional love. My thoughts stray to whether I could embody that depth of conviction. What would I die for?
The answer is right in front of me - two crazy boys that I love more than life itself. Both of them are wearing these silly bunny masks that their Grammie gave to them last year.
I thank Jesus for my blessings, who are giggling infectiously, and also for His sacrifice, that taught me to love so deeply.
