Time to make the Easter Pie. And this one is not a concoction. This one's from my family archives!!
The cooking is always the centerpiece of our holidays. But today I want to reflect on life, being alive and grateful for all I have. It is Earth Day today. It is Good Friday. Be cognizant of the beauty of nature and our need to save and preserve. Be grateful for the mysteries of this wonderful life and the religious ceremonies that seek to explain and celebrate our great earth and all its creatures.
Never take any of it for granted - life, the planet, friendships, great food and family!! I just spoke one of my best friends in the whole world and learned that the tumor in her brain doubled in size in 6 months and she must have surgery. My heart aches for her and yet, I am in awe. She is brave and calm.
So this Easter, I pray for AnneMarie.
