this morning while i was laying in bed, i could hear matthew in the other room having his morning chat with gracie. it was before the girls had found their easter baskets and they were talking about why we celebrate easter. in a sweet moment, i heard matthew and gracie talking about how in the spring all the flowers and trees come back to life after the long cold winter, and how beautiful it is, and how happy it makes us. he then explained how we feel the same way about easter and the resurrection of christ. it was such a sweet moment and one that i'm not sure i'll ever forget. it was so simple, but so true. i feel like so much of the spirit of easter is centered around hope- hope for a better day, hope of what's to come, hope for our families. i browsed the hashtag #becauseofhim on instagram last night and i felt so uplifted! i am constantly reminded that despite that world we live in, there is an immense amount of good to be found. you can check out a great video here to see more of the #becauseofhim movement.
