The Actual Easter Bunny
All last week, making plans for Easter, my Mom kept saying on the phone that the kids would have to see the Easter Bunny in the yard. I didn't know what she was talking about. I thought she meant that she'd put some kind of bunny statue or something in the garden as a treat for the kids.
And then when we got there yesterday evening, she showed me. No, she meant the ACTUAL Easter Bunny. As in, furry, cute, live, rabbit.
Apparently, just three days before, this bunny had just wandered into her yard and started hanging out in the little space between her yard and the neighbor's yard. The neighbor had given it food and water, and it was just making itself at home. Just in time for Easter, a real life bunny came to visit us.
We could see it out the window.
We went over to say hello. The bunny took a few minutes to chat with us.
Then considered where to go from here.
I know that most people would say it was a coincidence. A pretty amazing one, but still, just lucky. But after what I told you yesterday, I couldn't help but think it was yet another way for Love to prove itself to me. Just in case I had a shred of a doubt, here was one last gesture.
A real bunny. At my house. For Easter Sunday.
Nothing like that has ever happened to me before. It made me so happy.
I hope your Easter was lovely!
Updated: Just to let you know, we are all aware that this is likely a pet bunny that got out. The neighbors have been leaving out food and water for it and several people have been trying to find it's owners and/or a new home if the existing owners can't be found.
Updated Again: No one ever came forward to claim the bunny, so a couple of weeks later we caught the bunny and a friend kept it until we could find a loving home for it.
