pretty spring eggs!

for probably only the 2nd or 3rd time since my grandfather died in 1997, i dyed spring eggs (easter isn't my holiday, but same idea). it was one of those "our things" to do together, since neither my mother more my grandmother really enjoyed it, and we did it well into my 30s.

i wanted to try for a marbled and/or watercoloured effect, and i'm so pleased how they came out!

Abusive Parents Need Love, Too....

When Elder Care Hurts: Caring for Elders who have been Abusive or Neglectful.

I know from my own experience that the final illness and death of the abuser is a wrenching process, no matter how much healing you've done.
