    Happy Easter. This is my favorite time of year. I love spring, warmer weather, but most of all, I love Easter. I love celebrating the resurrection of Jesus with all of my family and friends. It is a time when I stop to count my blessings and thank the Lord for each and every one of them. I hope all of you have a very blessed Easter Sunday with your loved ones or friends.
