I really don't know where to start or begin with this post. This is a post that is really personal. I normally don't do much on personal posts and like to just keep things lite hearted and fun.. Today is a very special persons Birthday.. He is no longer with us and I miss him dearly. We all do in the family... It doesn't seem right that he is no longer with us. This special person was my FIL, we lost him earlier this year to a heart attack. For me Bud was a real life Santa.. He looked the part and carried out the part every day of the year not just on one special day. He was always helping people out and was the worlds greatest Philosopher!! He had words of wisdom for everything.. Once there was a trucker broke down on Christmas and would not have other wise been able to make it home to see his family. Bud wouldn't hear of it so he went and got him and took him home. Families that were in need of a bed or food, they got it without missing a beat.. So many, many great deeds and never wanted anything in return.. If you looked up the words "Random Acts Of Kindness" in the dictionary you should see his name there. For he lived this everyday of his life..
I got a text the other day from his sister and read as follows...
"We cannot make Bud Henderson's birthday a national holiday. We can make his birthday a special day that seems very appropriate to honor him and his life. We are asking EVERY family member (even little ones) to PLEASE do a RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS on Monday, Dec 3rd. If possible 3 acts would be even better!! (Research acts of kindness ideas... these acts do not have to cost you money.) Please forward this request to your immediate family and friends, Thank you.
Love you, Tonya"
My scrapping friends are my family and have always been.. So I am issuing this challenge to you as well! Together we can honor a very special person and do something wonderful for another person..
Here is the LO that I did of him for my challenge this month at Flying Unicorn.. This photo was one that I was gonna do last Christmas before he past.. I just couldn't make things work right with it so I past it on and did something else.. Little did I know he wouldn't be with us this Christmas..
I felt that this PP was perfect for that photo.. It is the Pinkpaislee "City Sidewalks" collection I used a lot from the collection not just the pp.. Petaloo vine and flowers, and Dusty Attic swirly Christmas tree, Decorative edges and Frames. Available in the Flying Unicorn Store. Here are some close ups of it..
