When facing the unknown or the next chapter in life, it helps to have a friend to travel that path along side you. Some of those friends are furry. Some have bad breath or limp. Some take up lots of space. And some never complain or are too busy to give you a hug or stop for a snuggle. These are fine friends, in deed. May you always have at least one in your life.
Sometimes you just need a friend to hug when the world seems a little scary or a little too big.
At other turning points in life, it helps to be reminded that you’ve been at the start of a new journey many times before. And that every journey starts with a single step, a single determined moment when you believe in yourself.
At time like that, it helps to hold onto the things that remind you of how big you are, even when you might feel small.
My sweet Biggest, may your tomorrows never be without the support of those who make you feel safe, loved, and capable of achieving any dream you dare to dream.
So many times you’ve told me, “I just want to change the world, Mom. I just want to make it better.”
You already have my sweet boy. You already have.
With all the love, support and dream-catching I can give you, Mom
