My Dear friends and family,
I got this idea From a wonderful friend named Angela Donaldson, and it cannot be completely done without those who love Seth, Matt, Emma, and Me.
The concept is that you fill a stocking with notes that are written about your baby/child and read them on Christmas day. Ask friends and family to participate, have them mail or email their notes to you.
We have a special Christmas stocking just for Seth. The hope is to fill it with heartfelt notes from those who wish to help me in remembering him. Knowing that your little angel will not be forgotten is the best gift you can give a bereaved mother. The notes really have no guides just write what you feel. You can write to Seth, Matt, Emma,or Me, or just “Merry Christmas in Heaven Seth” or “I will love and remember you Seth.” It doesn’t have to be more than a sentence really. The point is just to remember him with us on Christmas. The smallest gesture carries the biggest comfort and love in the hardest of times. I figured this is a great way for all those around me to love and support me through this holiday without actually having to be here or call me as I know all of us have families to be with. Consider this my Christmas present. I want to say that there is no need to “sensor” your writings as nothing that could be written could upset me or hurt me more than the loss of Seth already has. I encourage all of you to just write what is in your heart, if you had things that you wish you could have said to Seth or us then I implore you to do so. It will help you as much as it helps me. I appreciate any notes or thoughts that are sent to fill Seth's stocking, I will hold them all very close to my heart!
So here is how I am going to accomplish this: Ask all of you for a note. Then have you send it to my address. 207 Russell Lane Malvern AR 72104. If you don't want to send it that way then send them to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org, but I REALLY love to get stuff in the mail!! Especially stuff that helps me remember my Seth!!
Thank you again for everything. Love to each and every one of you. I hold you all close to my heart.
*** (\o/) For all my angel-mommies, I know that all of us have a rough time during the holidays. I included you in this note as, I wanted to not only hopefully get a note from you but I also wanted to share this idea with you all. If you are going to do this or something close to this, Please send me a message and let me know as I would be honored to write each and every one of you a little note about your baby/babies. I hope we all find some peace during the holidays and feel the love of not only our angels but those in our lives too. Thank you ladies again.
