I saw something yesterday that prompted me to write this post. It is completely not cloth diaper related, and not something that any of us want to see everyday. But, I think it gives deeper meaning to the holidays. Many families go through hard times and the holidays are when we can truly lean on each other and draw strength. I saw a post about a great way to honor and remember someone special. This was written on Facebook for Karing for Keegan. I edited the original quote slightly to make it a little more personal:
“Had an awesome idea for honoring and remembering [our little one] this Christmas. [He] LOVED Elmo–and what a neat idea it would be if everyone got an elmo ornament to hang on their tree — and each year when you pull it out, you can say a prayer and remember [him]. We’d love to see pictures of your elmo ornaments on your trees! And how fun it will be for [him] to see all those elmos on our trees!”
I think this is an awesome idea to remember loved ones, and I think its a great tradition. If you have loved ones that you would like to honor, what better way to do it than with an ornament on the Christmas tree? We will start doing this, this year… with Elmo :).
You can find more about Keegan’s Elmos here, who is the inspiration for this tradition.
