Our Friend, Sam...Rest Little One
Sam had a gift. He could tell when you knew he was not getting any better and he was able to tell you, "It's okay, tomorrow is another day!" And, often, tomorrow was another day.... just not today. Sam lived every day with joy, with love and shared his light with anyone willing to see the joy in every day. Sam's parents comforted us today, lonely and quiet in the hospital wing.
I wanted to share that I would visit Sam every day at the hospital. He was unable to receive many visitors, but his momma asked the medical team to allow me access to Sam, that I could come and go as I pleased because it brought her sweet little boy joy and release from his pain. I would visit Sam, bringing him cheddar bagels, and he would give me kisses.
Today I mourn for my friend Sam. Tomorrow I shall rejoice in the love that a little boy brought me. Please look up in the sky and give thanks for my friend Sam, he changed my world.
Thank you, MattieDog
