It’s Pi day today. All you mathletes know what I’m talking about.

March 14th – 3.14 (I would put the mathematical symbol right here if I knew how to write it with my computer)

So what’s that mean to you and me?

Well, for me it means getting circular candies for my son’s math class, and if I were a really hip mom, it would mean baking a pie, which I am not going to do. (Though I might have to go buy one now, just for fun.) But also for me, it reminds me of a time, a long time ago, when I was learning about love.

“Love is not like pie,” the couselor had said. “The more you love, the more love you have to give.” I was dealing with grief. I was learning that even though I loved someone with all my heart, someone that was now gone, I still had love to give. A wise lesson, one that helped me move forward in my life, to be open to love and happiness.

Who would have thought a math symbol, would help remind me of the power of love.
