Hockey Jersey

💛👣 Sent Isaiah off to school floating in his dads old hockey jersey today {see stories 🏒}. My heart spills forth of compassion & hurts for the families of the hockey players Humboldt Broncos. I can’t imagine what they are going through, and then I kinda can. 
Do you talk to your kids about world tragedies? Close to home? Deaths? I have to close the radio in the car over and over again when Isaiah is with me. What do you say and not say?

As I learn to navigate this thing called parenthood, how is it that we are reminded of the fragility of life through the tragedies of others- which are no strangers to our own. 
In this time of mourning, I am acutely reminded of the most fleeting moments. You know the ones-  morning fresh sun rays, big warm hands on small cold hands, delicate smiles. Just looking at things- living things for one- your kid(s)!!- savouring the most ordinary moments.  Let that be an imprint on your days, on your life.

In the end, this is what you remember. 
Love you 💋 E ⭐️ #humboltbroncos#tommytinkerforever
