I received a bag of hand me downs - but not just hand me downs... 'SNUGGLE me down' monkey P.J.'s and a new DVD. Today, I also received a DVD that Jim had bought me. Instantly my eyes watered.
Jim remembered when he was out and about, one of my all time favourite movies - and inspired me to be a cartoonist was/is The Incredible Mr. Limpet. He had picked me up a copy, my cousin sent it with a note.
I wish, I wish .. I wish I was a fish.. then the song .. be careful what you wish for...
I realized May will soon be over and it's been but a blur - literally.
It worse, for others I know. All I can do is continue to show my love.
I am wrestling with many emotions, - when I remember to stop wrestling and be quiet and ask for help - I get it. It's the remembering and asking that is the hard part most days.
The tears will come and go and I have no control. None. I was standing in the garden and they started to flow- not sobbing in anyway - just tears- escaping... I hope with each one a little pain escapes with them. I pray that for my cousin and her kids.
Crying is good. I can tell you - I realize after a few really good cry - I really feel significantly better. Like a huge physical release & even my head feels better, lighter. So, let it flow.
I certainly am not ashamed of tears that just appear.
So, as it was meant to be for me today - thinking about Jim. I miss him.
We all miss him.
Now, I've decided - Monkey P.J.s - and BBQ, a bit of drawing and thanking God I had the pleasure of Jim in our lives.
Really - I'm sure i've blogged about it before it is a great movie - especially for little ones-- let the imagination run wild! Drawing and creating Being the little Beings they should be!
I'm not big on television now - I was reminded why today, there is nothing like the Incredible Mr. Limpet on it.
Jim loved the movie 'The Incredibles ' - lol - We watched it last week and I know why - It's Jim!! Even the little car. lol. Of course 'googling' for the Incredible Mr Limpet - I am reminded of Jim as 'The Incredibles' appear first.
Hey you! I was thinking of you!
I can see the smile on his face when he hands it to me.
xox < for Jim.
