It seems as if I have been going all day. There was so much to do today… My first (self-imposed) task was to make a delicious treat for the volunteers who were working on the grounds at the soon-to-be open Medford Food Co-op. I was unable to participate in the cleanup day but I wanted to share my gratitude to the folks that are working to make this dream a reality. Fortunately, I was able to connect with someone who was able to take my offerings to the work party. (Thank you Amy!!!)
My next priority was to make a treat for the Rotary Garden volunteers. At first I thought that I would have time to work in the garden, but soon it became clear that I would not have time to go there today…. my dance card was overflowing. I called around and found that Tim was able to pick up the bagels I made for the gardeners. I hope that he conveyed my sincere desire to be there among them!
Later in the day, I spent time with friends helping another family during a most difficult time. I brought sweets (that is my favorite thing to make) and it seems that they were appreciated. We visited and shared a few laughs as well as many tears. It seems that this is what loved ones do. We help each other through life’s challenges.
And just so you know, I also made a pie today. It was a simple gesture of reconciliation. Fresh fruit, lovely pastry, butter and brown sugar. What could be more wonderful?
I hope that you all had a lovely day and I look forward to sharing a delicious pie with you tomorrow.
Hugs, and many thanks for joining me on this journey,
