The message from Peanut Butter Pie for Mikey for me is special… We all lost someone or something in 2013 that was an important chunk of our lives; a part of our circle. The passing of another year and the loss of people who helped define our lives is pushing us all further on our journey with a greater sense of urgency. It has taken until now for many of us to realize that our friends that are with us and those who are gone from our circle have gifted us with humble compassion, with a better understanding of our hopes and dreams that we now share openly with smiles and loud laughter, and the knowledge, also freely shared, that the journey is as important as the goal. With time and the bits of wisdom of those that left us we are beginning to have the skill to see the world through someone else’s eyes and to stand in their shoes helping us to moderate our judgments. The people we have lost this year leave with us the knowledge a hug, holding a hand at just the right moment, and listing with the whole heart are the special things in this world.
