We pulled into the driveway, and the kids unbuckled their seat belts. They sprang out of the minivan while I gathered up all of our bags.
“Mommy, Mommy! A bunny! Look!” Katie shouted.
I gathered up the rest of our belongings and walked up the driveway.
“Look!” Maddie hollered.
The girls stood next to a bright blue flag. The flag was on a metal stand which had been firmly planted in the ground next to our door. It displayed the cutest little Easter bunny holding a basket of brightly painted eggs. Happy Easter! it proclaimed.
“Well,” I said with a smile on my face, “there is only one person I know who would do something like this…”
“Bama!” the girls said in unison. They knew, too.
My mom. She is the only person I know who would drive the 45 minutes to our house just to leave a little surprise outside our front door. Just because it would make us smile.
