Now is the time…

Old Luton House May 2010
Easter memories have been flooding back to me lately.  I remember hunting Easter eggs with my cousin when we were both hardly bigger than the baskets we carried.  And, coloring Easter eggs with my brother, the smell of vinegar hanging in the air.  MaMa always made a coconut cake that was so moist she used toothpicks to hold the layers together.  She also made this delicious potato salad that was more like mashed potatoes than the chunkier kind I make today.  That recipe is lost to time.  
I’d like to step back in time and have us all together once again.  But, now is the time for new memories.  We can’t spend so much time looking back that we forget to enjoy today.  So cherish your memories of good times, but look at what you have in front of you right now.  Enjoy it.  Embrace it, because nothing lasts forever.
Have a blessed day.

Your post does take me back. I do miss those times and glad to have had them. Mom has alzheimers now, not to bad yet but it gets worse as time goes by of course. I look at her and think of all the happy holidays she made for us.
Happy Easter
