    Happy Almost Easter!

    Ever wonder where the easter bunny and easter eggs came from?

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    "The name “Easter” was likely derived from Eostre, the name of the Anglo-Saxon lunar goddess, as was as the name for the female hormone estrogen. Eostre’s feast day was held on the first full moon following the vernal equinox — a similar calculation as is used for Easter among Western Christians...Two of Eostre’s most important symbols were the hare (both because of its fertility and because ancient people saw a hare in the full moon) and the egg, which symbolized the growing possibility of new life. Each of these symbols continues to play an important role in modern celebrations of Easter."

    And by the way, before diving into your easter basket this year you might want to take note of the following:
    One Cadbury Easter Creme Egg (*yum*) is 150 calories, contains 6 grams of fat, 21g of sugar and only 1 gram of protein. Not so bad, right?
    However, One Hard Boiled Egg (painted or unpainted) is approximately 70 calories (depending on the size), has 5 grams of fat, 1g of sugar, and 6 whopping grams of protein. Not only that, but did you know that eggs help boost brain health, reduces inflammation, provides our body with much needed Choline, promotes weight loss, helps with heart health, improves your cholesterol profile, prevents blood clots, and protects eyesight? Whew! Lets see our little chocolate cream egg do all that! So what are you waiting for? Release your skinny, creative artist and get colouring those easter eggs!

    And no, I'm not on the Egg Council... :)

    I know I'm a couple days early, but I may not have time to post on the weekend, so...

    ~~ If only for today: smile a little more, sing a bit off key, laugh loudly and long, dance, skip, jump, play. Eat with your hands, hug every kind soul that crosses your path. Finger-paint, face-paint, body-paint. Do something brave. Squash a fear. Get out of your shell. Wear something sparkly. Be wild, be strong, be silly. For being foolish can make you happy but being happy will never make you a fool. ~~ Michelle

    Happy Almost Spring!! This coming Tuesday marks the Spring Equinox and in preparation for the first day of the new season I would like to wish you a brand new start, never-ending moments of poise and balance and a joyful tip over on the scale to the side of light. I wish you a new dawn, an eternal youth and a morning star to wish on. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may they melt away with the winter and may you be granted a time of new light and a new life where your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

    "Celebrating the Spring Equinox: The spring equinox is one of the four great solar festivals of the year. Day and night are equal, poised and balanced, but about to tip over on the side of light. The spring equinox is sacred to dawn, youth, the morning star and the east. The Saxon goddess, Eostre (from whose name we get the direction East and the holiday Easter) is a dawn goddess, like Aurora and Eos. Just as the dawn is the time of new light, so the vernal equinox is the time of new life." - from http://www.schooloftheseasons.com/spring.h

    Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've been on SP for just over four months now and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all. From recent experiences I can absolutely say that there is no mountain too high to get over, no hole too deep to get out of. And cliches aside, you are truly capable of anything!
