Late last night, I stumbled onto this post and I had tears streaming down my face within moments. I’ve been blogging for just a few months and in that time, I discovered something unexpected. The beauty of the blogging community.

I am so heartbroken for Jennifer and her family right now. But so thankful that she was wise enough to encourage us to reach out to those we love.

I woke up early to get to the store first thing this morning, before my husband left for work. The moment we finished breakfast, my boys and I were putting this pie together.

In Jennie’s words:
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.

Peanut Butter Pie Recipe can be found here.

If you do make a pie, and you’re on Twitter, the hashtag is #apieformikey. If you tag your post with that, Jennie will able to find them all someday.

    I wish I had come across the Mikey post earlier, I think it is a wonderful way to remember someone and to spread the good feelings. I think it was very brave of Jenni. And your cake has done it proud. GG

    Beautiful pie. Is is so nice that your boys made it with you. I saw this too late but I cant bake peanut pie and my son is allergic to peanuts. Anyway he would appreciate a hug. Thanks for reminding me to live everyday as though it is my last.
