I hope you are all enjoying your weekend whether it is religious or not. For me it is another day of just staying home and trying to keep my shit together. I love my sister and she is a fantastic cook but I’m taking a pass on this season. I am a bit worried because I don’t need an invite to her house for Easter, I am always invited but she does usually email me asking if I am coming and hoping that I do. I didn’t get that this year. Perhaps she knew I would not want to come because of Banjo, and THE BAD THING. But, She has been going through a lot and I am worried that there is something my family isn’t telling me. And maybe that is a good thing. I’m trying not to think of the bad things.
A Word About Ramadan
But this is a happy day for people of many religions. It’s crazy to me that Ramadan and Passover and Easter are all happening at once. My Greek Orthodox friends still have to wait another week. That seems unfair, but they get all the Easter candy on sale! LOL! I would love to hear anything about how you guys are celebrating Easter.
I may have shared this story before. Ramadan works off a different calendar. So when I was growing up on Tripoli, Libya It happened in very hot weather. Our little crappy Fiat got stolen. I am old but I remember the moments in life that changed me. One day my Father went out with a Tripoli cop to retrieve the Fiat. And I it was like eleventy billion degrees outside (which never bothered me) and I remembered him telling my mom that it was so hot and he bought a co-cola and offer one to the cop who refused it because of Ramadan. I was raised Southern Baptist. But, I have learned about so many other religions in my life. And I respect them all.
The Easter Bunny
The Easter Bunny really liked me well into my twenties. If I was home (somehow that is the only time the Easter Bunny came 🙂 ) I would get girly things like a friend of mine sends me all the time. It made me feel sure that Mama loved me.
So tell me what you are doing today. I’d love to hear stories. ESPECIALLY if there are sibling fights. LOL. Whatever your Easter Sunday is going like. You are free to share. I plan to continue to sleep for twelve hours at a time. And the check in with you guys. My fabulous support system who know way more about me than my family. I love you all whatever your plans are. I’m probably going to sleep in late. xo~tt
