Day 167

Today is your Daddy’s birthday,

He is missing you so much

I know when he woke up this morning you were the first thing on his mind

We both thought of you a lot today

What you are doing up there?

Are you proud of us?


We wonder how things would have been if you were still here

We know we can’t change things and bring you back

We can however live in your honour

We can have fun again and laugh knowing that is what you would have wanted 

We can connect to nature knowing you are not far away


I took your Daddy snorkelling today 

We saw a few small fish and one little stingray

It was windy and the swell was causing us to have to swim through the waves

Not ideal weather for snorkelling

 We still had fun though 

I know you were there with us 

Keeping us safe 

I know you can feel the love we have for you

It is bigger than the ocean


Your Daddy is so proud of you my son

He can’t believe the impact you have had in such a short time

How many lives you have changed

How many people that don’t take things for granted anymore

How you have changed both of our paths in life forever

How you have made us more loving and open

How you have allowed us to listen to our hearts 

How you have allowed us to connect in to our souls voice

Thank you Hamish we will forever be grateful for your short life
