Peanut Butter Pie

On my self enabled break after work last night, that break after work and before the many things I should be tackling at home, I was perusing food blogs -- one of the things I sometimes do to destress and declutter my mind from the fullness of an especially busy workday. Last night's experience was different though, something stopped me in my tracks and everywhere I looked there were photos of peanut butter pies...and with them an outpouring of love that left a huge lump in my throat.

There are many things in life that make us pause and think about the people in our lives who we love so dearly. And how important it is to cherish every moment.  Our family experienced that recently.  I don't know Jennie, but my heart is breaking for her -- her husband Mikey passed away suddenly and I am so incredibly touched by her love for her husband and the warmth and support being offered to her...the show of love in something as simple as a Peanut Butter Pie in hundreds of blogs around the world.

in her blog, she said
"... I kept telling myself I would make it for him tomorrow. Time has suddenly stood still, though, and I'm waiting to wake up and learn to live a new kind of normal. For those asking what they can do to help my healing process, make a peanut butter pie this Friday and share it with someone you love. Then hug them like there's no tomorrow because today is the only guarantee we can count on." says it so well, and they shared a video that is incredibly touching can watch their video here.

I pray that the many tributes being shared, along with the love help to bring healing to Jennie...and that it reminds us to hug those we love like there is no tomorrow.
