Happy Easter!

The kids will be all dressed up for Easter and anxious for church to be over; although we hope they listen and learn from the teaching of this day.

Ladies, and some men, have prepared a huge meal for a family and friend’s gathering. Yes, the table is full and waiting for the crowd to descend. Before you know it, adults are lined up on a screened porch or wherever they can find to settle down, moaning, because they’ve eaten too much.

After, the kids finally get to have some fun. Easter egg hunt. Yeah! Despite a few skinned knees, spilled baskets, sad faces that they didn’t find that “Special” egg, there are always happy squeals and laughter to fill the air. Maybe they found a bunny!


Mom’s, unless you brought extra clothes for the kids to change into, don’t be surprised if you’ll need to break out the spray for those stubborn grass stains. What matters is that the kids have fun. Grass stains are the least of our worries.

This Easter will be the second time in years I haven’t colored eggs. The kids have all grown up, so there won’t be an egg hunt this year. I have beautiful memories of all the places I’ve enjoyed visiting with family and friends on this special day.

My fondest memory is with my son, surrounded by boiled eggs and brightly colored cups of mixture to drop the eggs into. Ah, those were the days.

Wherever you go, whatever you do on this upcoming Easter, make it special.

I wish you a Happy Easter, Love, Butterflies and Music.

    I remember the days of coloring eggs. An older woman up the street when I was a kid did hers with oil paints on water. The eggs went in white and came out with the oil paint swirled in beautiful colors on them.

    Have a lovely Easter! The forecast here calls for snow, so no worries about grass stains, LOL.

    Happy Easter, Carol. And a happy one to all our Authors of Main Street and to all of those who read this blog. No matter what you believe, it’s still a day of happiness, family, good food, and fun.

    Hope your Easter was lovely, Carol. I love coloring eggs and I did it this year, but it was just me and my now adult son who indulged me, but wasn’t into it like when he and his sister were young. Easter is different without small children, but it’s still such a celebratory time of year. I love it and the hope I feel at EasterTime!
