Sorry for two posts in one day, please forgive me but this one had to be shared.
I’ve had a tough week, at least I thought so. I can’t continue with my current business direction, my hip started to hurt again and have basically been a little home sick for Canada. I didn’t realize how much some things affect me, especially when I get hurt. I mean I’ve been hurt before, I mean really. I’ve had IT band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and I’ve slipped a disc. So why this more than other times? Probably because of the combination of the homesickness and finding out that I can’t continue with home backing. Pity party of one please!
But then I read a post and then another and then another about something that happens everyday, a loss. This time, however, it unfortunately rocked the world of a fellow blogger. Jennie from In Jennie’s Kitchen, lost, very suddenly her other half. Her husband died of a heart attack this past week and the online foodie community has come together at her request to make a Peanut Butter Pie.
At first the connection of all the peanut butter pies didn’t make sense. I had read her post but in my selfishness, didn’t see her request. Then I got up this morning and saw the overwhelming response! Then it hit me.
WHY ARE YOU SO STUPID???
In the grand scheme of things, I’m pouting over nothing.
Rob gave me the morning off. I dropped Abby at work and he took Rowan and told me to go to the gym! He knew what I needed even when I didn’t. I’m so grateful for him and for my girls. You never realize it when you should, it’s only when you lose something do you truly appreciate those things around you or you watch someone else in pain.
I feel for Jennie. I’m so sorry for her loss. I can’t imagine what’s going on in her mind. I don’t even know her and I wish I could take her pain away.
But I don’t make this pie for just her request. I make it for everyone who’s lost someone or something they’ve loved so deeply.
Appreciate all that’s in your world! Go hug your loved ones (2 and 4 legged!)
I’m going to!
Thanks for looking!
