Wow, wow, wow! I am really blown away by all the wonderful support, from friends and strangers alike, of Stevie's 30 Days of Doing Good project. I've been checking my email like a mad woman, and each time I have a new message from someone who has done something "good" in honor of my girl, I just tear up and smile.
Here are some more of the special things people have done in Stevie's name.
From Angie, California:
Over the weekend I planted a bunch of flowers in our yard. My next door neighbor, who I don't know all that well, likes to plant flowers and garden too. So, I thought I would take the opportunity to do something good in honor of your baby girl! As I was finishing up I left about half a dozen snapdragons and marigolds out and brought them over to my neighbor so she could use them for her yard. She was so surprised! :)
I just have to mention here, I am a total "shoe girl" (I actually sold shoes at Nordstrom all through college!), which makes this story and picture all the more special to me!
From Tracey and Fellan from www.theeddybearcompany.com:
We would love to make you a "Stevie Bear" so that you can cuddle in your arms. We will embroider Stevies name, and/or a message on both paws of the bear for you and send it to you. (anywhere in the world) The bear comes with a red heart that you can place something special inside and then is secured inside the bears chest.
Please accept this act of kindness from us to you. Love and healing to you sweet girl.
Another cool thing: we called Stevie our Little Bear Cub while I was pregnant with her :)
From Deanna, California:
Today for my random act of good, I surprised my friend with a bunch of books as she is expecting her first baby in just a couple of weeks. She was thrilled! My favorite part of this project has been being able to share Stevie's(and your) story with others.
From Tiffany, California:
I know as women how hard we can be on ourselves... being self conscience about our bodies, so self critical. There is a lot of pressure to look a certain way. People are so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and work that they rarely do anything nice for anyone else. So today in the bathroom at work I put a little note for all the ladies that go in there and see themselves in the mirror. I hope it brings a smile to someone's face.
My son Kallen and I packed up 10 of his smaller baby outfits that don't fit him anymore and then went and bought 3 baby girl outfits. I put 'From Stevie' tags on all of them and took them to the local Woman and Children's shelter. I think what you're doing is beautiful and plan to do a few more things before Stevie's month is over - I will let you know :)
Thanks again everyone! Keep 'em coming! :)
This hectic thing we call life.
