This week’s quote is about children and mothers, one of my favourite subjects, as you all know!!!
I just came across this quote on the Internet and thought it was great… It is more like a poem really… It was written by Strickland Gillilan, an American poet and humorist. He wrote:
You may have tangible wealth untold /Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold / Richer than I you can never be – / I had a mother who read to me.
Of course you can see why the quote would appeal to me, can’t you?

It’s very simple: all you have to do is decorate some eggs and then hide them in your garden or yard, and then play with your younger siblings or cousins to see who finds them all first! And yes, the eggs have to be boiled!! And of course the fun begins with the decorating of the eggs! Here is an idea:
You will find the recipe for these on http://www.larecetadelafelicidad.com/, an award-winning blog which, by the way, has all its posts written both in English and in Spanish! So interesting for you!
