Just Because

7 May

A few days ago my daughter mentioned that one of her professors had seen a recipe for Chocolate Tofu Pudding on her blog (SheisRed.com) and he told her that if she ever needed someone to bring some chocolate pudding to, he was available.  Well, it’s been a while since I’ve made a Chocolate Cream Pie, and so today I thought it would be nice to surprise her professor with one… just because.

My year of pies was about gratitude; acknowledging the people in my life who have made a difference.  Many of the people that I gave pies to were dear friends… and the gift of a pie was a way of thanking them for their friendship.

But sometimes it’s nice to give a gift for no reason at all.  It catches people by surprise and hopefully leaves them with an urge to do something nice for someone else.  This good deed could be like the first domino in a chain of dominoes, once set in motion, it can’t be stopped.  How fun would it be to begin a chain of wonderful, caring moments… and to think, it could all begin with something as simple as a pie.

A friend sent me a gift of a magnet the other day with a quote that I fits this project perfectly… see what you think.

Go into the world and do well.  But more importantly, go into the world and do good.  Minor Myers Jr.

    What a wonderful project you created! I’m sorry to learn about it at the very end; I’ll have to read your earlier posts. I really admire the motivation behind your acts of generosity. I have the same attitude toward helping others.

      Shybiker, I am glad to know that you share my philosophy. It was modeled for me by my Mother… and I have tried to do the same for my children. To me, it is so important!
      Thanks for writing, and best wishes,
