We are on day one of a gift we didn’t deserve. A gift that unfolded three weeks ago when an old teammate and dear friend said her house would be available while they went away. A gift that was unexpected, unexplainable but extraordinary.
A beautiful home in small town Oahu, very close to the famous North Shore surfing spots. Mountains, birds, orange staining soil, trampoline, flowers, warmth… and oh the smell.
This morning at breakfast Owen exclaimed, “Where is Nana?” I guess he thought that she would meet us in her favourite place in the world.
Mom has shown up.
Day 1 Morning – Playground Beach
The gift of life.
The presence in death.
Mom is all over this.
Thank you mom for your life and leading us into death. You are amazing in the past and now in the present.
Off to smell the flowers.
