Easter is a special holiday for those of us who have lost someone that we truly love because it is the day that we celebrate that Jesus is risen. We know that Magdalena is in heaven because Jesus paid the ultimate cost for our sins. However, it is on this special day that we miss her the most out of all of the days. Mary Magdalene was the first to see Jesus when he was no longer dead, and when our pastor preached I couldn't help but think about how Magdalena (Magdalene in Spanish) was the first of us to see Jesus. I did make it through all of church and family time, which felt like an accomplishment, but at the end of the day I was emotionally tired. I miss her so much.
Katie and Carter took balloons and a pink egg to Magdalena's grave, and Mimi planted the purple flowers.
