What a full and wonderful weekend. We are thrilled to have all our chicks back in the nest! We are savoring the time to reconnect, even while there are the obligatory emotional bumps along the way. E slept well her first night home and woke up with a craving for Rockland Bagels! A 30-minute drive seemed doable and E enjoyed a quick tour before needing a bagel break. 😊 #worthit
While E-bug rested with Grandma, Matt and I got to spend Saturday with Hannah & Ruby and thoroughly enjoyed the TGC egg hunt in Central Park.
However, the highlight of the weekend was Easter Sunday. While I'd prepared myself for her to decline, Elizabeth decided that if Grandma would be her "wing-man", she would, in fact, want to brave the crowds of loving friends and head to church! It was incredible to celebrate our risen savior with family and friends. We finished the day with some read-aloud time and games with friends, and then shared a meal, lovingly delivered by yet another generous friend. So much grace.
It is impossible not to recognize that Elizabeth is alive today, both in spirit and in body, because JESUS is alive! What a happy homecoming. We are humbled and beyond grateful to experience this miracle.
