Oh, the places you'll go!

💛👣3 years ago today, when @lifeinourworld_ gave us a free trip to Hawaii because "Estelle needs a little vacation and wouldn't be AMAZING for little Thomas to feel the Pacific Ocean in his toes?" - i swear, her exact words. 

So here we are- chirpy Tommy and bloodshot eyes me on a @westjet plane. In the midst of worry and health uncertainties we said screw it and escaped to paradise. 

I remember overhearing Scott talking to the organ donor advisor the day after Tommy left us. He had to tell him all the places in the world Tommy had been. Guys, he had been to so many places 🌎😭🌏!His toes touching many lakes, countries and oceans.

I remember, the caption of this picture had been 'oh the places you'll go' - a saying I love and discovered when @nilanaturalsgave the book to me upon graduating from university. "Though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me", Thomas Merton writes. 

It doesn't matter where I go now, you are permanently sitting on my lap, skin to skin, bone to bone and leading the way, for your way is my way, amour.

Oh, the places I'll go! 🏹✈️🔮👶🏼
