Love, laugh and eat pie

“Make a peanut butter pie 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” Jennifer  Perillo
A wonderful blogger lost her husband last Sunday at 5.52 pm.
When I found out my first thoughts went towards my husband who sometimes works more than 60 hours a week and towards our daughter who we feared we might lose couple of days ago
I knew I had to make a pie and share with them. I knew I had to tell them how much they mean to me.

Don’t wait until tomorrow
make a pie
hug your loved ones
and share laughs.
And then make a pie for your friends and neighbors
Please visit Jennie’s blog to get the recipe and send her some love. She needs us all!

    I cried so much when I read her post. Then @whiteonrice's video made me cry again :( I love how the blogging community responded to this. I didn't make the pie but in my heart I did…

    Roxana we tend to take our loved ones for granted don't we! I will today make it a point to tell my family that I love them!

    Lovely pie pictures dear maybe I will read it tomorrow without feeling bad about Jenifer's loss! I am sorry.

    Wow this is so sad this reminds me of my neighbor giving me all of his lemons from his lemon tree, we were planning to give him a lemon cake in return but the next day he was found dead on the floor due to a heart attack.

    What a sad history… We all tend to forget very single beautiful moment should be cherished, since we never know when our life might change.
