notes for the everlost


That he was here at all made more love in the world. With him, there would have been more. 
But without him, there would be less. I ache with this surplus. The ache is how I know it
exists.

We needed a break and he needed a change and to see some of what's out there and this trip did the trick and there is a collection envelop on the kitchen counter marked 2019 VACATION and my hope is every year he sees more and more and more.

Good morning, mommy

I rub my eyes to find him (and rhino) here. He is talking to the birds and scolding the squirrels
and I grab my phone from the night table to capture this because it still sometimes feels like a
dream and how many times in a day do I say or think what would I do without him?

I can't wait to watch his eyes light up when he sees the ocean for the first time, to see him swim
in the waves, to share as much of the world as I can with him.
