This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Do you have friends that you’ve known a long time? You’ve been thru a lot together. You’ve weathered many storms.
But maybe you also have a friend that you’ve known for a short period of time. Like the amount of time that I’ve known Fruitycake.
We visited very beautiful waterfalls yesterday that many of you told us we should see. And you were so right. And we thank you for telling us about this park. It meant a lot to us.
I was gazing at one of the falls. And I was thinking about how beautiful it was.
I looked over at Fruitycake and he seemed very impressed as well.
And I thought to myself that I would have really enjoyed Fruitycake many years ago too. I wish he would have been with our family always.
We are told to appreciate the ones we are with because we never know how much time we have. But I wonder sometimes who will come into my life later that I wish was here now. Like Fruitycake. I wonder sometimes if all of the special ones that make up our lives are sprinkled out just a little at a time. But we have them with us always.
Digby Pancake was and is my brother.
Fruitycake is and will be my brother for many more years to come. Just like Digby. In fact, all three of us are brothers.
They both have touched my heart and I hope I’ve touched theirs. If I would have closed my heart after Digby passed away, Fruitycake’s magic couldn’t have been sprinkled out. And I would have missed out.
Don’t close yourself off to someone you wished would have been with you always. A waterfall is. A waterfall was. The water flows. It comes back around. It falls down. Just like the soulmates of our hearts. There is time for them all.
