Are you putting the ham in the oven
Are you peeling the potatoes too
Have you had your first cup of coffee
Did you fix breakfast for you?
Easter morning for mothers
Is a busy time indeed
If you are hosting the dinner
There is no time to sit and read.
You colored the eggs yesterday
With the help of the little ones
Today you must go and hide them
In the warmth of the Spring sun.
Baskets lined up in a row
Candies puffed up to see
Pretty bows adorning the tops
Can’t wait to pass them to my three.
Everything prepped and ready to go
A shower is what I need
Picking out my pretty pink dress
Now I will take the time to breathe.
I hear the doorbell sound its alarm
Familiar voices have entered now
I welcome my family with lots of love
The girls curtsy and the boys do the bow.
Eyes light up as they hold out arms
I give them their baskets and smile
I tell the parents to come and sit
Let’s just chat for a little while.
Finishing the meal is now the plan
Everyone lends a hand
Talk of smells and wanting to taste
My family together is oh so grand.
We sit at the table with candles lit
We hold each others hands
Grandfather says please bow your heads
We shall give thanks for all we have.
Dinner is over and dishes to do
The kids run off to play
My daughter stays near me to help me
To dry and put everything a way.
The men are snoring for afternoon naps
Their belts are loosened and neckties too
The rest of us talk about nothing major
But inside I am thanking God for all of you.
