We had a very windy day as well - and I had no one to help me, so it was very hard to get the bubbles in a picture before they blew away! It must have been a mighty lion roar that blew them away so quickly.
First thing this morning, I took just Jilly outside for some quiet time just enjoying the morning breeze and just being outside, in the spirit of Reed. It was wonderful, and she loved it. We will be doing more of that, for sure. The bubbles were nice, too. It felt almost like setting him free, you know? I've been thinking of him all day, and Sarah and Wayne and Garden bug too. I hope today was healing for you, and you felt our support.
Reed Aslan ~ Forever in our Hearts
It's been raining all day here but Ryne and I still made our way outside after I got home from work today to blow some bubbles. Don't mind the last two pics I've been playing around with one of my photo programs.
Rest well little lion. You will forever be in our hearts.
All of these pictures are wonderful. What a great idea this was. I loved being outside with Jack, thinking about the spirit of Reed, enjoying the day and blowing bubbles. I'll be able to post our pictures in a minute.
Miranda, I love that last picture of yours. I swear you can see it in her eyes, she knows exactly what she's doing as she's waving to him.
Sandraleigh, that comment you made about the mighty lion roar got me all choked up.
OK, here are our pictures...
We were sitting in front of my herb garden in honor of Reed's love for food!
ETA--so many of you have posted and/or talked about special, spiritual (for lack of a better word) moments that you had when blowing the bubbles and I just wanted to share mine. I guess I thought I was being silly for getting emotional when our special moment happened--and the picture is less than flattering of me, for sure--but it really was an amazing moment. In the middle of us doing the bubbles, Jack stood up and hugged me, which he never does. I was touched and snapped a picture of us....
...and then I wanted to add this last one, too--he sat there for the longest time with his head back and eyes closed like this. I have a whole series of pictures of it. Like he was having his own private moment. I told DH about it and about the other experiences y'all have had, and he said, "they know. The babies know."
Girls, these ae lovely pictures. With your permission I would love to take these pictures and turn them into a scrapbook for Sarah and Wayne. Would that be ok?

RIP Reed Aslan
Jess!!! I think that would be the BEST idea in the WORLD. Could 2 copies be made? One for Gardenbug too? I wish we could iron all these onto the quilt. maybe we can make a collage online too so everyone can see it?
