[Two days after surgery, I was bound and determined to attend the Easter Vigil service at our Church - one of my favorites. My Mom MADE me take a long nap that afternoon.]
[ . . . But I still wore myself out. This picture reminds me of one of my favorite photographs of Johnny and June Carter Cash.]
[OK, this pic is from Advent, but my parents and I sat by this window on Easter Sunday. I'm telling you, St. Catherine and her wheel will appear in an essay of mine - just wait.]
[After the Easter liturgy, our Church had a big par-tay. Johnny made his famous Manhattans.]
[Me and my sweet friend, Dianne.]
[My Mom and I took iPhone photos of each other (my Dad's on the left there).]
[Our Church is FULL of musicians (L to R: Ben, Thom, Fr. Doug, Ethan, and Dave). Thom was singing Bob Dylan.]
[ . . . And played tambourine.]
[Y'all have no idea what a great man I married.]
[By this time, I was worn OUT, but I stuck around to hear Johnny sing Elvis's "In the Ghetto" via karaoke. He was AWESOME. Check out this link to the video footage.]
* Quite possibly THE best Easter ever.
P.S. -- You can see a few more photos and videos on mine and Johnny's Facebook walls.
