The Day Before Easter


I'm always sad on Good Friday. 
It's the  Day of the Cross. The Day of Sorrow.

Today is Saturday.
Another sad day.

Tomorrow is Easter, the Day of Joy.

I have reasons for sadness today, other than the season.

Our daughter with dementia grows worse. The Corona Virus makes times harder for everyone, especially if you don't understand why, when, where, or what's going on.

We made the 100 mile round trip to drive with the Easter Parade at the assisted living facility last night.  The staff are amazing at how they've kept spirits alive and people entertained.  

We drove through several times. Many families did as well. We all honked and waved.  Here's a short movie.



I yelled and tried to be happy, but if you listen closely, you can hear tears in my voice.

I don't know how to edit the movie, so at the end, you can hear my hubby ask if I'm ready to leave. I wasn't. We went through once more.


Hope and Joy tomorrow.
