When I was little, I had the same Easter basket year after year. It was pretty, old fashioned looking and well, a tradition.
Then one year I was at my sister’s house for Easter and of course, my basket wasn’t there. So, my sister made me a basket. You don’t know how big a deal this is. My sister is a self-proclaimed “non-crafter” and really never makes anything.
But it was the first year after my parents split up and the first time I had spent Easter away from home and she knew it would mean a lot to me. I still have that basket. It’s not just a basket – it’s a reminder of being loved.
