MY TOMMY DRAGONFLY BECAME REALITY TODAY.

Many of you know that for the past several years I have been wanting to get a … dragonfly tattoo in memory of my Son, Tommy.
Not only that … it had to be in a certain place … on my right shoulder where … I already knew it belonged. Because … all this time I have ‘felt’ a dragonfly sitting there.
I had a wonderful first experience getting a tattoo. It made all the difference having a person who is kind, caring doing the actual tattoo.
I was very emotional inside … no one but, Skip and several others knew how much this dragonfly tattoo meant to me. Now … I have something to actually see, touch for comfort … a link to Tommy.
His love for dragonflies is why I chose a dragonfly … not only that, since Tommy died … dragonflies have appeared in the strangest places, oddest times.
I would like to thank Jason for making this perfect dragonfly for me … reality to remember my Son, Tommy with. Thank you for your kindness, caring.
Thank you to someone who knows who they are … for being a special part of this beautiful dragonfly experience. Thank you, Skip for being there, and part of this. Tommy was special to you both. I love you both.
Each time I look down at my dragonfly I feel a soft happiness all the way to my soul. So much … that tears fill my eyes. This means the world to me. This is from a person who just knew … she would never have a tattoo. Now … don’t tell Skip yet … I’m thinking about a flower tattoo! 🙂
