my sister emailed me this morning with the most thoughtful idea to remember and honor noah this holiday season.
13 Days of Rainbows. (you know, kind of like 12 days of christmas...)
for 13 days this month, beginning tomorrow on noah's half birthday, we'll spread love and joy with acts of kindness in noah's name.
please join us. december 5 - december 18.
commemorating six months after noah's 13 days of life.
do one kind deed anytime during those 13 days, or something everyday. totally up to you! follow your heart.
*bake cookies for firemen *buy a stranger coffee *take a care package to a family at a children's hospital *bring soup to a neighbor *give a christmas gift to a child in need *give up your seat on the bus .... do whatever you wish to honor noah, whatever feels right for you.
click here to print or download a cute little card that you can use to pass out with your kind action (made by my ever-talented sister).
and if you feel comfortable, let's flood Instagram and Facebook with pictures of good being done across the world in noah's name by using #13DaysOfRainbows to encourage and inspire us all.
on my very first blog post a few months ago i spoke about how even in this awful and tragic time, i have to believe that God is working this situation for good. it is our deep desire that noah's life and legacy somehow brings love and grace to as many people on this earth as possible. and we believe 13 Days of Rainbows is a beautiful and perfect way to demonstrate that legacy of noah's, through showing kindness to others.
thank you. thank you. thank you.
...for loving our boy and honoring his life with us.
looking forward to seeing all your kindness-spreading!
and please feel free to share this opportunity with others!
