Peanut Butter Pie for Mikey

I follow hundreds of people on twitter, most of whom I’ve never met. The other day I saw this tweet:

I don’t know her, and she doesn’t know me, but as the details later emerged, I couldn’t imagine the shock and pain Jennie was feeling after suddenly losing her husband to a heart attack. I later showed Mike her blog, with the video she posted of her husband Mikey dancing with their daughter. We read her latest post together, in which she says

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.

We both agreed that tonight, we’d have pie.  In honor of Jennie and Mikey, and to appreciate the time we have together right now, because like Jennie says, today is the only guarantee we can count on.

  • Wow, I just read her blog. That was so emotional and I feel so sad for her. I think this is so great that you made this pie even without knowing Jennie.

  • I’ve actually been avoiding all things dealing with this – it hits a little too close to home. Especially when my mom is staying with us this weekend to attend “Camp Widow.”

  • Kamaile

    My heart goes out to Jennie and her family.
