“I love Easter,” Little Cub said.

“Me too,” Papa Bear said.  It’s even better than Christmas.”

“Better than Christmas? Why?”

“Because on Christmas, we celebrate Jesus’s birthday.  But on Easter, we remember we get to be with him forever.”


“Forever.  That’s why God gave us Easter.”

I love mailing these surprise boxes off to special people in my life.   I wish we could all be together to celebrate Easter, but at least with these boxes we can pretend like we are creating together!   HERE they are all boxed up!

You don’t always get what you want in life…






And I quote Uncle Fred from the cartoon Arthur’s Christmas– “You don’t always get what you want in life…. Sometimes you get something better!”
