If you were an Easter egg, what color would you be?

eggs1While I worked in the garden today, my mind wandered to Easter Sunday, and the nice day I will have with my sister and her family.

As usual, one thought led to another, and I began to think about Easter eggs.

My great philosophy of the day? Life is like an Easter basket, and each one of us is a special, colorful treat to share with the world. Some people are all ears. Some are real basket cases. And some have a hard time coming out of their shells. Some are a little cracked, and some are really good at cracking US up. Some aren’t really good for us, but we love them anyway. Most of them are really great when we need a little comfort.

What kind of an egg are you? Here are some brief definitions of what different colors symbolize. I got the list from a website called and they have many, many more definitions for each color. If you want some food for thought (pun intended) when you are dyeing your eggs this weekend, think of what colors you add to the lives of those around you.
