This time of year is usually when I look back on the year as it comes to an end and reflect on what brought me joy and also the challenges I faced and then I like to set intentions for my year going forward. I treasure my photos and videos I have of Simon and each time I look at them, I find new meaning. In the winter before he passed away, we went down to the common one sunny afternoon to play and I took some photos of the boys. Looking at the photo of the grass growing out of the log made me think of how nature always finds a way and in the cycle of each living thing, growth is inevitable and necessary in order to get to the next step. I find myself embracing the beauty of life and then recoiling in mistrust at times when I see the darkness that is there too. For me life can seem so simple and complicated all at the same time when I try and make sense of it. Looking at these photos today, I felt a stirring in my heart to trust in the magic again. This is my wish for all, with love.
