This year, the holidays feel a bit somber. I swing from being so excited to see Nash's wonder at Christmas lights and trees to being utterly despondent because of the other boy who isn't there. And I know Noah's mama and daddy are missing him about a million times more than I am... and I miss him a lot.
So this Christmas we are doing something to get outside of ourselves, to rise above the loss, and honor the amazing impact of Noah's life. We want to further his legacy and put good out there.
Noah's mama explained it all so beautifully on her blog, but the basic idea is this. Beginning on Noah's six month birthday (Today! Happy six month birthday, Noah!), we are going to do acts of kindness for 13 days, to remember the 13 wonderful days that Noah was with us. Noah's mama has some great ideas on her blog. And you can do all 13 days, or just do one thing, we just want to do some good in Noah's name this holiday season.
We also are asking people to share photos of what they do, and if you want to, you can use the hashtag #13DaysOfRainbows so that we can see all the wonderful things being done in honor of Noah.
We also made printable cards that you can give when you do something kind, and hopefully people will pass it on! You can download that here.
Thanks for listening, and I pray that you all have a safe and happy Christmas. :)
