Makes My Monday: Acts for Angel Abbie

On Good Friday of this year, He-Twin and She-Twin lost a beautiful, courageous classmate to cancer.

Their school, our community, all who ever met Abbie Waters still grieve, and feel her absence  profoundly. For this holiday season, her parents' first Christmas without their daughter here on earth, Abbie's mom, Mary Ann, is making a request:

Abbie's Christmas
"We have an idea for Abbie's stocking this year. You know how she was all about friendship and her friends were/are her world. Well, if you want to do a random act of kindness like letting someone in line ahead of you at Target, picking up a piece of litter, or just doing something extra for a friend or charity in Abbie's name....and then email it to Abbie at her email address: Abbiewaters [at ], we will put all of the emails in her stocking by the fireplace and then on Christmas morning when we would have opened gifts with Abbie, instead we will open and read all the acts of kindness done in her name. I think this will be something Abbie would appreciate and I know Jeff and I will need something that morning to help us through. She loves/loved life and her friends....and most everyone she met she would consider as a new friend."

If during this holiday season you find a window wherein you can enact a morsel of niceness in remembrance of our much-loved and much-missed friend, please make a note of it, and email to If it's easier or more comfortable for you, email me or leave me a comment and I will forward your kindnesses to Abbie's mom in time for Christmas eve.

The opportunity to act as Angel Abbie's hands this season Makes My Monday.

Link up and share what Makes YOUR Monday.

I love this...I gave an overworked Target cashier a gift card for no good reason. Does that count? I'm going to keep this in mind!

What a beautiful idea. Have you heard about the Kmart layaway lady that is spreading random acts of kindness? It started here in MI and I heard on the news this morning that her idea has spread as far as CA!
