bountiful tears and warm hug
and lifted heart
for fresh grace
to grieve it out
and open to the comfort
as it comes.
Oh friend.
I give thanks for the wonder
that was your sweet Sam
and for the love and life
you shared with him.
We're all the richer for it:)
With you,
Jen

Oh, oh, oh, dear ELK. My heart is with you and with dear Sam, wherever his spirit is right now. Sending you so much love - and wishing I could wrap you in a giant bear hug. I am sending one across the interwebs in hopes you can feel it anyway.
