I have a favor to ask of you. A party favor, if you will.
I have been thinking about the twins’ upcoming birthday since before they were born. Would they have a first birthday? And could we possibly celebrate it with true joy?
They will. And we will.
This will not be a party with cake smashes, icing covered cheeks, or awkwardly toddled steps. They will sloppily drink formula. They will have kiss covered cheeks. And they will be awkwardly and limply handed around by loved ones.
And yet we will still celebrate it with true joy.
The boys who “can’t”, perhaps “won’t”, and according to some, almost “weren’t”…are my heroes. They have inspired so many and yet as of today they are capable of little more than love.
So imagine what YOU could do. Those of us who CAN, WILL, and ARE…how much more can we accomplish? Especially if we work together?
My request is simple…go be a hero. It may be a big gesture or a small one. One that is known, or one that is done in secret. You can take a meal, pay a bill, lend a hand, or simply provide a shoulder. Just do something kind. Something good. Then tell us about it. You can comment on this post, or on the facebook link, I will compile the good deeds, and display them in a special way at the birthday party. A reminder that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. And anyone who chooses to, can make a difference.
Go be a hero to someone. If they ask, tell them Landon and Nolan sent you. I can’t think of a better birthday present. And I can’t wait to hear from you.
