Some people in this world take care of others. Chances are, you’re one of those people. The ones who step up to the plate when things need doing. When your Mother gets sick, when someone gets hurt and needs help around the house, when folks fall on hard times and need just a little help getting by. There is always someone who, despite their overly crowded schedule and already tight finances, can manage to fit in just a little more to help someone else or tighten their own budget just a little extra in order to fit in a way to help others.
My friend Jyl is one of those people. She takes care of others. She’s always been like that and I know she’ll still be the same way fifty years from now. Last year around this time she stepped up to the plate when there was a medical scare in her family. Jyl took care of things and people as needed and was grateful to be able to do it.
In the midst of that, when her birthday was forgotten in the shuffle, she didn’t complain. In fact, I doubt folks who forgot her birthday last year realize to this day that they did. But knowing that you’re probably one of those people just like Jyl, I thought you might like to join me in wishing her an even Happier Birthday today.
In honor of her birthday I wanted to showcase Jyl’s favorite dessert, Lemon Meringue Pie, along with a few other lemon favorites on Southern Plate. I’d love it if you’d join me in wishing Jyl a Happy Birthday, I know it will mean the world to her.
You can also make her favorite lemon pie or any of the lemon recipes listed here. I’m sure Jyl would approve!
Like little bits of sunshine!
Old Fashioned Favorite in a butter crust
I first had this as a girl and have loved it all my life.
I would rather be Small and Shine, than be Great and cast a Shadow
