scattering kindness

Every year we plant sunflowers in our garden here in Vermont. We plant them in celebration of the life of Erin Elizabeth Potts. Sunflowers have become a reflection and symbol of the radiance of Erin's life.

You may read about why the memory of this dear girl is so important to us here.

It is no coincidence that our sunflowers tower over the rest of our crops in the month of September, for it is Childhood Cancer awareness Month. 

I have just sent a donation to Scatter Kindness, a memorial fund set up to honor Erin's life, to help ease the challenges of those battling cancer. 

It is one thing I can do to help make some small difference in this world. 



  1. Thank you for your donation! Most recently, Scatter Kindness helped us celebrate a 24 yr old's completion of radiation. We all wore bright green (lymphoma awareness) cowboy hats and line-danced to "House Party"!

  2. This is a difficult month of remembrance because we're honoring the memories of children who've left before us. I wish you strength and peace in those memories. Sadly and thankfully, I'm made a donation this month as well for a friend whose son died of brain cancer. I'm grateful there are organization working to battle the hole cancer creates in families.
