It is through this love that she and her girls will be able to find the joy, laughter and memories that will live with them for their entire lives. I recently loss my grandmother unexpectedly. There was no time to say goodbye, you just hope they KNEW how much you cared and loved them. There was no time to laugh one more time at a past memory, you just hope they KNOW you are still laughing when you think of them now.
By making this pie, I was able to remind myself that I still have the love of my life with me and that I should not take for granted our 24 years together. I should stop and say thank you more often. I should say I love you more than once a day. A hug is not a disturbance. The laughter we share is medicine for our soul. We are blessed that we still can hold hands, have a date night and continue to share our lives together.
I don't believe death is the final chapter in our lives, I believe that we will always be connected and that the influences from beyond the veil are ever present in our lives and those of our children. It is sad, when the one we love passes. We cry, we wonder why, we hurt, we are scared but we also find the strength to continue, to lift up and eventually to laugh again.
Having felt loss before of a loved one, my hope and prayer for Jennie and her family is that they find strength in each other, to keep Mikey's memory alive and to find happiness in the days and months to come. I believe he would want this for his family, I know that I would, if I was the one looking at my family with eternal eyes.
I made the recipe from Jennies blog for Creamy Peanut Butter Pie. It is below.
