Happy Easter Weekend to YOU-Party Potato Recipe
Today I have potatoes cooking away for romanoff potatoes for dinner. We are going to my son's inlaws and plan to have a lovely family time. Tomorrow we will attend the Mission downtown where the homeless stay. It is a lovely experience being around people for a service who have no home and no possesions and are trying to do the best they can with the mistakes they made in the past and the hope for the future. It is always nice listening to the two people they choose to tell about what happened to help their life in the past year. At the end of the service, they serve hot coffee and cinnamon rolls and we come home for a nice brunch with people we love and thankful hearts that with God's blessing to us, we didn't have to try to overcome the pitfalls of losing your family, your friends and everything else. Easter Sunday is always my most thankful day for who I am and how lucky I am with all of God's many blessings.
I hope you experience this during this lovely time of the year!
