A full moon shines brightly over the summer sky, tonight. As I walked towards the field, I glanced at the horse walking towards me, my heart stopped for a second… the image… the profile was that of my very beloved mare who passed away just two years ago. I wanted to hold that moment and not let it go.
But, I knew it wasn’t her. I wondered if my eyes were playing tricks on me.
In that one instant.. that one moment in time, with the moon throwing shadows and casting images as dark profiles… in that one moment frozen in time… the son looked just like his mother.
It made me smile.
Then I thought of Nathaniel… and how closely he resembles his father. I didn’t know John as a youngster, but from old photos they look almost identical and I can see his father’s features in him. John’s aunt recently came to see Nathaniel and just shook her head at how much Nathaniel resembles John.
R.I.P. Squall and John. I’ll do my best to look after the babies.
