My wife had a wonderful idea this year to put something different in our Easter eggs. Yes, we had candy in our Easter eggs, but also something else.
When I got home from the priesthood session Saturday night, there were slips of paper on the kitchen table with the names of everyone in our family, one name per slip. We had the opportunity then to write something nice about each person on those slips, and then have the Easter Bunny put the notes in everyone's Easter eggs.
That's simple enough, don't you think? What was the result?
Easter morning, I opened my eggs and found statements like these.
"No matter what, you are faithful and fiercely loyal to the Lord."
"Daddy...is always making me feel better about myself."
"Papa...you make me smile and you are always so nice to me."
"You are...my knight in priesthood armor."
Well, how do feel after reading things like that? Like trying harder and being better and living up to a higher standard.
I love jelly beans, but those were the best Easter eggs I have ever opened.
