I don’t want to remember today, a year ago. I don’t want to be here today. I want to hide in my bed all day long. But I can’t. The fact of the matter is, I’m here and this is my life. An idea came to me in the middle of the night, when I was tossing and turning. I have a lot of anger. Obviously. A lot more than I would like to be feeling in my life. I will forever hate August 12, 2010. But what if we could take this awful date and turn it into something beautiful, for being so ugly. The name, Ronan’s Day of Kindness just came to me in the middle of the night and I envisioned thousands of people doing something nice for strangers, family, or friends today, in honor of Ro. Kind of like a pay it forward day. It doesn’t have to be anything big. Leave some flowers on your neighbors doorstep, buy a person in line behind you a Starbucks, go volunteer somewhere. I know this is last minute, but the only way I am going to get though the day is by the thought of people doing nice things and making others smile, all in the name of Ronan.
Then next year, we can take it to a whole different level and make it something that happens every year on this date. I know this would make Ronan smile and happy. I know it will help me get through today. I love you all so much, my faithful followers. If you could help me through today by doing something small like this, I would so appreciate it. I know in my heart that Ronan’s beauty can make this world a better place. The love that I have for my son is going to move mountains.
I love you all too. Thank you for all of your kindness, support and love. Have a lovely day and please hug your babies extra tight.
