Why do you think that we -also- associate Easter with the "Easter Bunny? BE-cause rabbits and eggs represent fertility and rebirth. The bunny represents fertility and the eggs represent the resurrection.

Our children look forward to egg hunting and the surprises awaiting them in the morning. My mom used to leave a big basket filled with my favorite things by the bedside. Of course, it wasn't mommy who left the basket of goodies but rather the "Easter" bunny.
I was talking to my neighbor/friend who was sharing with me the Easter Tradition in Portugal. It sounds to me that old traditions and rituals remain alive. As a matter of fact, Anna told me that they bring the Portuguese Easter tradition to each of their homes. The family members actually visit each home until they reach their final home to celebrate Easter. In Portugal the priest goes to each home within the village to give his blessing to the family and house. In the Portuguese culture the priest is welcomed with food at the dining table most especially with the "Folar" (a typical bread during Easter) and wine/ liquor. Our Easter Traditions throughout the world may differ but we all share the same love in celebrating Easter as a day to commemorate/remember Christ's resurrection. Anna, thank you for sharing your family's Easter Tradition with me. To my Cieloscent Rosary Family, I wish you a most blessed Easter day.

sleep. Yes! Insomnia! It's a terrible thing for those suffering from
deprivation of sleep, night after night. Listen to today's podcast and learn how-by adding extra steps to your bedtime routine- that you can actually get a good night's sleep again. . Below is summary of topics presented on this podcast.
consult your medical doctor before you add or change anything in your
health regiment. This is an opinion based blog intended to encourage
you to conduct your own further research.
1. Take Inventory of your bedroom:
Remove the TV from your room
Invest in great bedding-
Add Blinds or shades that allow the room to remain dark until you open the blinds.
Keep room slightly on the cooler side.
Add Lavender or other soothing scent. If you prefer -like myself-no scent in the room okay too.
Add white noise to buffer the outside sound. You can use earplugs but do so with caution.
Remove electronics that shine a light such as an electric alarm clock. Remove or cover light.
Remove items such as a wall clock that may makes movement sounds-the ticking sound.
2. Sleep Rituals
Create a bed time. A time that you will retire each night.
Take a warm shower
Make a cup of tea- Chamomile, Valerian, Linden Tea leaves-no sugar-Check with your Doctor.
Investigate adding Melatonin or other herbal sleep aids but do so with caution.
Wear 100 percent cotton pajama
Lightly Stretch before sleep.
No noise better but meditation or soothing recording okay too.
3. Consult with your medical practitioner most especially if you are taking medication.
4. Be consistent in your bedtime ritual and create a healthy habit in 30 days.
5. Before you close your eyes say your prayers and ask God to help you sleep in peace.
6. Do not eat heavy at dinner time. If a little hungry at bedtime roll up a slice of organic turkey.
7. Get out of your own head-stop taking your worries to bed with you.
