Easter Musings

The past few days have been a blur......I sleep so much after treatments.......and the dreams are so vivid.  This afternoon as I napped, I dreamed a song......I dreamed I was singing it in front of thousands of people.  I did record a little bit of it when I woke up, but I haven't listened to it.
Sometimes those songs are great, sometimes they are quite scary outside of dreamland. Ha,ha.

I thought of something that I had not thought about in years.  When I was three or four years old, (about Jordan's age) my oldest brother Herbert was dating the woman he eventually married, Edith.  Edith could play piano, and often after she and Herbert had finished their nightly phone conversation, she would play songs for favorite one that she did.....Easter Parade.
I remembered her playing that song today with smiles and tears.  My brother Herbert passed away just a couple of months after my tonight as that memory flooded my head, I thought of my big brother and how I miss him.  I almost called Edith and asked if she would play that song for me!

I am stuffed, I have eaten more than I have in weeks.  My sister Pat and her daughter, Jayna
cooked all my favorite foods today and one of my most favorite deserts.  I think I might explode I have eaten so much!

I also thought about my favorite Easter dress.......I was eleven....for the first time in my life my mom bought us matching dresses.....sorta.....hers was black voile, boat neck, fitted at the waist, big full skirt, rows of tiny lace trim......mine was white.   She had black hair, olive skin and brown eyes, I have blue eyes, blonde hair, and fair skin......we were opposites in so many ways.  Interesting how those dresses showed our differences.

Wishing you all a glorious week, filled with all that you love.
