He became one with the ocean


As the sun set we walked into the ocean together. Sam, my dad, my mum and I. Our hands were cupped tightly.

As we all bent down and sunk our hands into the water we released him.

On his fourth birthday I watched his ashes leave my hands and it was then that he finally became one with the ocean.

This post moved me like nothing else. To think there is a little bit of darling Christian with my Hope and in his beautiful beach, just makes me heart so full.
I'm so proud of you Carly. I know what a huge thing this was for you. The first post of yours I read at Glow was talking about Christians ashes, all those years ago.

Beautiful Carly, just beautiful. I sense that Christian is free now to flit about above the waves and to just frolick.

And now your sweet baby boy is truly a piece of every picture you take of the ocean. What a comfort it must be to know that every night he will be waiting for your visit and vice versa.
