IN MY LIFE
I have one very simple message for you today: do something nice for someone else to honor Emma. Emma Evelyn Ivanovsky would have turned 17 today. She was tragically killed in a tractor accident nearly two years ago.
I met Emma’s parents, Tiffany and Paul, years ago through blogging and consider them friends. Their heartbreak, as you can only imagine, is just about unbearably and yet they push through for, what I would imagine to be, two big reasons: for their six other children and to keep Emma’s memory alive.
Even at her young age, Emma was known for her generosity and her ability to love on others, especially her younger siblings. That’s why, in honor of Emma’s birthday, we are asking you to honor her by doing something simple and gracious for someone else. You can even go to AGiftFromEmma.com to print out pass-along cards. That way, if you want to buy someone’s drink in line behind you at Starbucks or drop a note in someone’s mailbox or something else even grander, people will know why you are doing it and carry on her legacy. You can print out your pass-along cards and book labels here: http://agiftfromemma.com/print-your-cards/
We honor you, Emma, and life you up in prayer, Ivanovsky family!
