A Celebration of Mothers and Daughters Begins with a Reader Story-An Easter Egg Hunt to Remember
Every May I encourage readers to send me stories of not only their mothers but women important in their lives. I have received the most touching stories and poems over the past three years. Do you have a poem or story you’d like to share? If so, please click the Contact button above and send it to me. I’ll be happy to post it. Susan Faloon gave me permission to share this email she sent me when thanking me for a book she received through the 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt by Love Inspired Historical group on GoodReads.
“I think you may get a smile from what I was allowed to do last night. I’ve been without my father for 30 years but my 81-year-old mother is still quite active. The two of us sat in her living room for about an hour filling over 175 plastic eggs with candies. She had already fill nearly 100 in my sister’s car on her way home from a chemo treatment in her eye for macular degeneration.
Then, by moonlight we spread the eggs
all over my youngest sisters yard for my niece who is 25 and still can’t let Mamie’s Easter tradition go. It was funny to watch my mother sneaking around. This is the first time I’ve been allowed on this secret mission which she usually does for her grandchildren at 3 houses,( my two sisters and I).
After I got back home it really hit me what a gift I’ve been given.
I still get to have my mother who has had cancer, polio, survived a bad car accident and much more. Despite knowing she is going blind she still did all of this for those she loves. I got to share it with her.
That was my Easter gift from God this year!
Hugs and prayers,” — Susan
