We certainly have our secular Easter basket prepared for little Miss Mayumi, but what we're really looking forward to it hearing her sing in the children's choir at church and raising our own hosannas in gratitude and joy.
Whatever your religious inclinations, here's wishing you a peaceful, joyous celebration of hope and renewal. Happy Easter friends!
Our Easter basket this year celebrates our shared Japanese-American heritage. In solidarity with our Japanese brothers and sisters who have suffered so much through the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown, we dedicate this Easter to the hope we have for renewal, rebirth, and redemption, especially over there in Japan! Ganbatte!
