Pay it Forward


This past Tuesday, October 9th, would have been our niece Sophia's second birthday.  She blessed the world for 40 days, not long enough, but she made a huge impact.  (You can read her story here.) To celebrate those 40 days of her sweet life, her mom and dad started Sophia's 40 Day Challenge last year.  And last Tuesday was the start of the 2nd Sophia's 40 Day Challenge.  Basically, Tim and Sarah Smallwood, and the rest of Sophia's Team, challenge you to pay it forward for 40 days.  It could be big or small.  It could be as simple as bringing donuts to a staff meeting, paying for the person behind you at a drive-thru, having a conversation with someone sitting alone, taking your neighbor's dog for a walk...anything, really.  Sophia's mom and dad want to live out their daughter's life, a life measured in moments, and spread kindness in her memory. 

If you are up for the challenge to pay it forward, we would love to hear what you've done and how far Sophia's story has traveled.  Leave a comment on this post saying what you did to pay it forward.  Feel free to comment annonymously if that's more comfortable for you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read Sophia's story and pay it forward in her memory!

  1. What a beautiful idea. I found this post via the dollhouse via the Pinterest Challenge, and I will be paying it forward tomorrow. Not sure how yet... but I will. Thanks for the reminder that life is a gift. Blessings to you and Sophia's parents!
