HAPPY EASTER!

  It is a long four day holiday weekend in Jamaica and holidays are not the easiest of times when you have lost loved ones.  However  as I reflect on Easter my spirit is lifted by two quotations - "Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life"  and "The great gift of Easter is HOPE." Interestingly these quotations were stickers on a letter from one of Janine's former pen-pals whose name is also Janine.
 
HAPPY EASTER to all who celebrate this season!
