Happy Easter!

It's late, and we're tired, so we're not going to post about our day today, but there is an Easter quote we got in our email the other day, and we liked it a lot and decided to share it here.

"Our Savior lived again. The most glorious, comforting, and reassuring of all events of human history had taken place—the victory over death. The pain and agony of Gethsemane and Calvary had been wiped away. The salvation of mankind had been secured. The Fall of Adam had been reclaimed. The empty tomb that first Easter morning was the answer to Job’s question, 'If a man die, shall he live again?' To all within the sound of my voice, I declare, If a man die, he shall live again. We know, for we have the light of revealed truth."
—President Thomas S. Monson, "He Is Risen: A Prophet’s Testimony", Liahona, Apr. 2012

Today I'm thankful for the atonement, the resurrection, the lovely time we had at Mom's house today, the tasty lemonade we had, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
