Easter Cupcakes on the Kitchen Table

What is it about the simplicity of cupcakes, especially Easter Cupcakes with all the frosting, spring colors and of course, the little Easter Bunny to grace the center.

Simplicity is the beauty I believe, and it is interesting to see the color combination of these spring time hues. The center of the cupcake calls me and reminds me of the power of being centered.

C. G. Jung has a wonderful quote about the center: " I have called (the) centre the self...It might as well be called "God within us." The beginnings of our whole psychic life seem to be inextricably rooted in this point and all our highest and ultimate purposes seem to be striving toward it."

The kitchen table holds the center for people to gather and talk. Easter is a time of family coming together to once again renew their love, hope and faith. It is a time for loved ones to listen to their hearts and express gratitude for each other and to feel joy.

Easter is a time of renewal and believing again in miracles. It reminds us that hope is healing and we can once again know life continues. It truly 'centers' us to be reminded that life resides within each of us and as Jung's quote said "... all our highest and ultimate purposes seem to be striving toward it."

Enjoy your Easter Cupcakes and all else that Easter holds for you. Make sure you sit around the Kitchen Table and Talk.
