I keep saying it over and over, but truly, what a difference a year makes !
So we took Jasiu with us to bless our Easter baskets and dressed him up in the Polish Highlander traditional outfits. Emily and Jasiu looked so cute. On Sunday, we passed on the early morning Resurrection mass at 5:30 am since we didn't want cranky children for the remainder of the day and just attended a regular Sunday mass at 7:30 am, breakfast and brunch at the Klimek residence and then dinner at the Hyc residence with the Krol side of the family. Emily and Jasiu got to spend time with cousins on both sides and they had a blast.

We are so blessed to be able to spend another holiday as a family and outside of the hospital and with Jasiu doing so well. As I thought about the events of the Holy Week and how Jesus' mother had to witness her son's death so that we all could be saved, I couldn't help but to pray the same prayer that thousands of mothers pray each and every day "God, thank you for this day and please spare my son's life so that we may have another day. Amen."
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter as well.
