Pie Day

 Annual Pie Day is coming this week! On November 19 come join us for community and Pie.  I am told there will be many to choose from. Store bought, homemade, hand name it and I am here for it. 

I don't know about you but dessert is a very important topic in my household. Anywhere from "do we get to eat some tonight?" to what is the absolute best version. My little one doesn't love chocolate ( not sure if we are really aligned on that one...) and my big one can't keep her hands out of the sweets. My spouse loves Apple pie and ice cream and my favorite...Rhubarb hands down. 

On the calendar there is a picture of giant piece of pie so all know the excitement coming up. It's gotten me to think though- does pie have any greater importance? Is there a lesson to be learned from eating pie? 

I remember when I was a little girl my grandmother taught me how to make my favorite pie. We'd chop the rhubarb and clean it. She showed me how to make the crust. Shed send me to corner store to purchase the correct cheese. All of this was done in two languages as German was what she could remember when it came to cooking and English was all I had ever been formerly taught. 

We managed though. And those memories are so strong. We worked hard together to make those pies. We communicated and created something delicious. And when I eat a piece I remember her and her dedication to teach me her ways. They are sweet memories. She could have made them without me and much faster I am sure- but there was something in it for her too.

I wonder what my children will remember when they are older. Will something as simple as pie eating conjure memories? Maybe the smell of the redwoods we often walk in or perhaps the feel of ocean spray. We never can know which things will imprint on children. We do know that they are wonderful alive beings who capture and learn so much more than we will ever know. 

I do hope to see you all this weekend. I will be posting to introduce myself in weeks coming and you will start seeing regular posts. I will focus on our Youth and Family Program, child rearing and what New Thought teaching has to offer, and hopefully we can begin a dialogue as we journey together though one of life greatest gifts and challenges- Parenting!

Have a peaceful Day!
