Random Acts of Kindness

I'm constantly trying to think of new ways to incorporate Owen into our daily lives. Even though he's not here, he is a huge part of our family. I love when he comes up in conversation. Last week at church, a lady noticed my necklace and asked if it had my children's names on it. I smiled and told her about being Owen's mom. I think about him all the time. I miss him more than words can describe, but I also feel such gratitude for being able to be his mother. The twenty-third day of the month is always a hard one for me, but I'd love to turn those days into days of happiness. We decided to honor Owen's life through random acts of kindness, and we'd love it if you would join us in this! Our plan is to do one random act of kindness on the twenty-third of each month, but you could do it any day you like! Pinterest is full of ideas. It could be paying for someone's meal or coffee behind you in the drive through, making a donation to a charity, doing someone's yard work, leaving quarters taped to a vending machine, dropping off brownies to your neighbors, leaving your mailman a treat, etc. We plan on leaving little notes [link here] so that Owen's story can continue to spread. If you join us with this, take a picture of your random act of kindness and post to #owenthomasparker. We're excited about honoring his life in this new way!


  1. Bless you, sweet boy. You, radiant love, have touched even me.

  2. I wanted to be sure you got to see this. So much love to you, and I am so sorry for your loss.


  3. This too! God Bless your family - I think all this is Owen smiling down on you ❤

  4. Dear Owen's Mommy,
    I follow Jen Hatmaker on Instagram and learned of the RAK honoring his memory this evening. I found your blog and read your story...and grieve with you. What a beautiful boy Owen was (those eyes!). I hope his story spreading and the RAKs spreading his memory and the Love of the Father bring you some comfort.
