The best thing about a pie is the filling. The crust is just necessary to hold all the filling in. Everyone comes with a crust that is predetermined...but the filling is up to us.
The crust is my physical make-up, my intelligence, my personality, and my gifts. The filling is all the delicious relationships and wonderful people in my life. The vacations I take. All of my memories, even a dash of salty ones here and there. The experiences I have, risks I take, skills I learn and stories in my head.
I have to remember that my crust has limitations. However, my filling is limitless. AND, I want a deep dish pie with lots of filling!
How are you filling your pie? My filling is making precious memories with my family right now. I am savoring the few years I have left with all three girls still in a state of somewhat dependence.
