Every year we celebrate losses and gains, I gained a new niece London and I lost my Grandma. My Grandma was a creative lady with the biggest heart. She loved hearing the about all the people's stories in the nominations the first year we ran #RandomActsOfPieness. The world keeps on in the people that touch our lives.
Our winners in our the last #RandomActsOfPieness definitely touched me. One first winner was a kind lady who was nominated by her daughter, she had her legs amputated at the knees due to MS and was in a wheelchair. Her daughter shared with us that her mother always made her family Christmas dinner because the "mom" always looks after her family. As we entered their house with the angelic sound of the choir singing Christmas carols, her mother sat in her wheelchair very quiet. I explained her family had nominated her for this and she had won because of how giving a mother she was. I gave her a gift of pie and she thanked us. I can still remember the proud look on her husbands face as we left. I was actually worried we had overwhelmed her as she was so quiet. Moments after we left I received a text from her daughter letting us know that her mom was crying and overwhelmed by emotion.
