Celebrate with Jelly Beans and Chocolate Bunnies

 Easter is a time of love, of family, and of peace.
 It is a time when we say a quiet thanks for all that we have and for all that the future holds. 

Easter is a feeling in our hearts of hope and faith and trust.
 It is a day of miracles; a day when our dreams seem a little closer; a time of retrospection for what has been and anticipation of all that will be.

And it is a time for remembering with love and appreciation for the people in our lives who make a difference-people like YOU.                    by
