Cathy has today off to enjoy her family. We want to wish all of our readers a Happy Spring, Happy Passover and Happy Easter. When I was a girl, I loved an old storybook, first published in 1939 called The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes. It's a tale of a Mother bunny who has many, many children to tend, and who dreams of becoming one of the Easter bunnies. The book was well ahead of its time. There doesn't seem to be a Daddy Bunny. And the Mother Bunny is not only female, she is a brown bunny. The rich men bunnies who laugh at her dreams? They are not.
To become an Easter bunny, the wise old chief Bunny gives her a difficult task. She must complete an arduous journey to bring a basket to a sick boy. No one supports her. No one thinks she has a chance. How can she leave her children for an entire night to test to be an Easter bunny? Take a few minutes to listen to the story. I think we can all relate to loving our kids so much, we can move heaven and earth. XOX
