What says Love like a fresh-baked Apple Pie?  Whether you bake it yourself or go to your favorite bakery to purchase it for someone you care about.

My son-in-law, Gee, made us Apple Pie when we visited last Christmas.  It was really good, and perhaps better yet because he made it for us.  My daughter Crissy, and granddaughter Emily, put together two pies and a Chocolate bunt, just the other day, for Jim’s birthday. Emily placed a candle on it, and we were good to go. The pleasure it brought us was from the expression of Love it demonstrated, and Emily’s joy at baking it with her two beautiful hands side by side with her Mom. It also tasted wonderful. My friend Leslie told me a while back that some of her fondest memories of her Mother was cooking and baking with her in their family home. Til today Leslie is a great cook and  it is obvious that Love is one of the ingredients in everything she conjours up.

I just finished taking an Apple, Berry pie, out of my own oven.  It was the aroma filling the house that brought to mind the pleasure of Apple Pie and Coffee.  But it also reminded me of something else.  What’s more American than Apple Pie?  The only thing I can think of is our Men and Women in Uniform that forego the joy and safety of their own homes.  They leave behind loved ones, family and friends, parents, spouses, and children, to take up arms in some foreign land.  They  protect us all and allow us to indulge in the luxury of Pie and wonderful smells, and keep us bathe in Freedom. They are the pride of America. These generous members of the Armed Forces  express their Love for us better than any Apple Pie.

Today we celebrate Veterans Day.  Thank you with all my heart to the Members of the Armed Forces serving Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.  God bless you. This is my virtual Apple Pie to you.
