One year today.
(or more more like 365 days, 8765 hours, 3.156e+7 seconds)
This picture always moves me. What’s that quote says… it’s not the length of life, but the depth of life? It matters HOW you lived.
This picture summarizes Tommy’s life. Tommy’s soul was full. He was always content. I couldn’t believe it. Coming back from the hospital, I was always waiting to come home to an irritable baby, whiny & scared. But no. When healthy, he was calm, collected & wise. So wise. I’d see it in his eyes.
I feel so lucky he chose me to hold him, he chose me to birth him, he chose me to look at him. I was his lioness, his protector and I loved him fiercely. And I still do- love him, it’s a deeper love now. It’s a deeper life now.
But when I close my eyes, I can almost go back to this magical day in Hawaii, surrounded by my family, warm sun, blue seas & skies.
When I close my eyes, breathe in full, I can taste Tommy’s freedom.
And now, he is truly free.
