130/365 ~ The Hard Goodbye {b&w}

365 days of me

TRP: Leaving (on a jet plane?)

 

The theme for TRP was leaving and immediately "the hard goodbye" came to me and I couldn't think of anything else so I went with it. I had a b&w version in my mind and didn’t change my shirt from my happy purple thinking it would be in b&w but then realized FGR was straight out of the camera {the reason for both versions}

  

I have had a few hard goodbyes in my life but the hardest have been the final goodbyes and the one that sticks with me the most is my son Matthew who we said "goodbye" to when he was 3 months old {due to a heart defect}. His birthday is in a few months {would have been 13} and there are just times during the year that most of my thoughts go to him. I have learned to go with it instead of repress, which often I express creatively. For me, it helps. Sorry for the "heavy" post today.
