I don't know exactally how the conversation developed from here but then we started talking about the Easter Bunny and it went something like this:
Me: The Easter bunny poops out the eggs.
JP: Ha ha ha ha ha! That's why it is a platypus.
JP: That's the only mammal that can lay eggs. When I was young my logical mind was thinking why is it an Easter Bunny? Bunnies don't lay eggs. The only mammal that does is a platypus. The Easter Platypus.
Me: Ha ha ha (for a long time) THE EASTER PLATYPUS!?!?!
JP: So we can tell our future children about the Easter Platypus instead of the Easter Bunny. It makes more sense.
Me: No! You were so logical as a child it scares me!
Don't get me wrong, I love Easter egg hunts, eating candy, making children happy, and celebrating. But most of all, I love my Savior. I love that I can be a better Wife, Daughter, friend, Niece, Aunt, and Cousin because of Him. As my thoughts turn to the Savior this Easter morning my heart is full of gratitude for Him. Because of Him my life is full. Because of Him I can learn. Because of Him I am happy. Because of Him I am whole.
