So we carried on the tradition of dying Easter eggs again this year. I tolerated it much better than I did last year. I even got my hands messy, so that in itself is an improvement from last year. We made all sorts of colored eggs and dad even wrote on some of them to personalize them for me and my cousins and even my Aunt Jen's dog Daisy.
Dad preparing the eggs and writing our names on them.
Ready to dunk!
Let the waiting begin.
...and more waiting!
Is it ready?
Discovering what that stuff in the cup is.
Eww...it's wet. I even splashed some out of the cup and got it all over myself and my chair.
"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you are alive you have got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive." ~Mel Brooks
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
We learn as much from sorrow as from joy, as much from illness as from health, from handicap as from advantage and indeed perhaps more. - Pearl S. Buck
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money. Love like you've never been hurt, and dance like no one's watching.
Love makes each day a joy, and each moment a memory.
"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence . . . 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
One day at a time is enough...don't look back and grieve the past, it's gone...don't be troubled about the future, it has not come yet...live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.
