A few days ago I realized it was Easter this weekend, a day that up until a few years ago was marked with pre-planning, purchasing random crap, cooking, dying eggs, and preparing for the Easter bunny arrival. We crafted, we dyed eggs, baked elaborate cakes and candies, and woke up to a huge basket full of candy and toys. In fact those Easter baskets were full of more stuff than we exchange for Christmas now! We "do" holidays a bit different now.

How could something that was so important to me a couple years ago now mean virtually nothing? The answer I think is personal growth, in knowing that these things hold no value over our lives and in realizing, like I did this morning, that it is OK to grow and change over the years. Just because it is different to us doesn't mean it holds no importance.
