Lily's Christmas Stocking Project

I first heard about this project last year on Fran's "12 Days of Christmas With You in Heaven" series over on her blog, Small Bird Studios...Since then, a couple other blog friends have taken part in it. It's such a precious idea, so I want to do it as well, in honor of Lily. I have decided to change it a little bit from the way it is usually done.

"There is no footprint too small than it cannot leave an imprint on this world."

Lily's beautiful LIFE has left a forever impact on me and many others. I want to do something to honor her. I can never fill her stocking with things because she will never use things, but how about filling it with love and words

If you would like to do something for Lily this Christmas, here are a few ideas:

-Send me an email, message, or letter letting me know how Lily's LIFE and legacy has affected you. (Seriously, this means SO much to me!)

-Donate to a place that is close to my heart in her honor...places such as Lily's Legacy Comfort Boxes, Molly Bears, and Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.

-Commit an "Act of Love" in her honor. Some people call these "Random Acts of Kindness." It doesn't have to cost a lot of money or take much time. Get creative. Donate an Angel Tree box to a child in need, buy someone's coffee in the Starbucks line behind you, leave a more generous tip than you'd usually leave, smile more, pay someone a genuine compliment...the ideas are endless!

All I ask if that you do something in her honor and memory during the Christmas season. If you could email me at roseandherlily@gmail.com by Christmas Eve letting me know what you did, that would be wonderful. Simply put "Lily's Christmas Stocking" in the subject box. Please include your city/state/country. I am going to print out all the emails to fill her stocking and will read them all on Christmas morning. Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate! Thank you for remembering my girl with me this Christmas!



  1. Oh my goodness I can't believe Morgans baby boy was born. I will be be praying lots of prayers for that little guy. You will be getting an email from me for Lily's stocking!


  3. Dear Hannah. I am so happy I came across your blog and your posts about Lily´s Christmas Memory Stocking. I lost a child to abortion in 1978 and although I have a made a memory page for him at Facebook and put a little cross with the name that I asked Jesus to baptize him, something is still missing. I am a grandmother and I love to knit socks. My grandmother knit socks for me when I was a child and her socks were so wonderfully warm from the love she knit into these socks. So of course I will knit a Christmas knitting for Benjamin, my son, who lived for 12 weeks inside of me until I let him down and allowed a doctor to abort him. I will knit the love that lacked in me for him into that Christmas Stocking. I am so grateful to you and to God for the inspiration I was given today. Love from Susanne.
