Day 287: A Quiche for Debra

18 Jan

As has happened many times before, today’s pie recipient was suggested to me by a previous pie recipient.  I think it’s kind of nice that the pie recipients want to share the good feeling that they had with someone else and I’m delighted to help make this happen.  In a way it is like a game of dominoes where each person that has been touched in turn touches another until finally everyone has been included in the game.

This sounds so lovely and yet I am very aware that on my own I cannot reach everyone.  As it is, I have less than eighty days to go before my year of pies is completed.  However,  I have heard from some people that they have been moved by my story to do something for someone else that they might not otherwise have done.  Perhaps they baked a loaf of bread for a neighbor, or made a pot of soup for a friend, or brought farm-fresh corn to someone new in the neighborhood.   Making a difference in someone’s life is really as simple as that.

If you were to consider being a part of this “game” you would not need to bake a pie by any means.  You need only find a way to share something with just one person and if they seem interested in the game, you can ask them to “pie” it forward.  If more of us do that,  then it is more likely that everyone will be reached.   In any case, I believe with all my heart that it’s worth a try.

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.  Walt Disney

    Great message and inspiring. Making a pie is not my thing but I can find many other ways to touch someone’s life.
