I hope you all had a wonderful day of reflection with family and friends. Easter is such a great time to honor old traditions and create new ones, don't you think? Just this past week we lost a very close family member so, Easter will take on new meaning for us in the years to come.
With this recent lose, we missed our little grand-daughter that lives in Europe more than ever and as a result the inner child in me was especially longing for the Egg dying tradition.
On a whim, I decided to dye a few hard boiled eggs and pack them up for some of the elderly people in our neighborhood. After a quick coloring I packed up the eggs in little boxes that I had purchased from Oriental Trading. As I recall they were under $2.00 for a dozen.
These little boxes were received with such pleasure that I just had to share this inspiration. The folks that received our little gift were so happy to be taken back to their younger egg dying years and glad to have a moment to reflect and share some memories. Hopefully this post will inspire you to help someone find their inner child.
You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.
