The Power of Pie

Just as I was starting to demonstrate how to make pie dough at last night’s class, my phone did it’s little “ding-ding” text-message thing. Being that my hands weren’t in the bowl and covered with flour and fats yet, and that the ding was so well-timed, I pulled my phone out of the deep apron pocket and saw that I had received a text from my friend, Kelly Cline.

Kelly's Flowers

“You should check your porch ;)”, I read out loud to the four pie makers at the table.

Four pairs of eyes followed as I went to the door and opened it. Laying on the doormat just outside I found a beautiful bouquet of flowers in shades of my favorite colors of pink.

At least one at class asked if this was planned.

“Not in the least!” I replied to their smiling faces and set them on the counter.

When making dough, I always take a moment to think about someone and put an intention “into” my bowl. Kelly went right “into the bowl” and I texted her right back telling her so.

Lately I have been experiencing things like this nearly daily.

You may remember that last week, a “web angel” showed up just when I was having an emergency.

Here’s another:
Purely on a whim, Tuesday I stopped to see a friend on the Olympic Peninsula that I hadn’t seen for about a year. Before I had even come round to the passenger side of the car, he opened the front door of his house and with tears in his eyes said, “I thought I had lost you forever and here your are!”

At that very moment when I decided to take the back road that passed near by his house, he had been trying to locate me via old telephone numbers without success and then I showed up!

And, today after shopping, I spied a business card on the ground near my car. For some reason I decided to pick it up. It was someone I had been looking for and thought I had lost, too!

Does this stuff happen to you? Not sure what really is going on but if this is the power of pie it’s pretty darned amazing!

    Going to make em cry woman :)

    and no… totally wasn’t planned. I was at the store and was thinking of Kate quite strongly, saw those pink flowers and they asked to be brought to her :) You can’t say no when a whole bouquet asks so nicely in unison 😉
