Small Signs

Small signs…

I don’t ever see dragonflies sitting still, but today when I visited Samuel’s grave I found this little fella keeping watch over him.

Getting up close didn’t seem to disturb it at all and it stayed in the one spot for my whole visit.

The dragonfly has been a part of my experience of Samuel’s death, and part of the experience that reminds me that there are connections continuing.

After I shared the picture above on social media someone sent me a link that provides an explanation about dragonflies as a totem and the history and symbolism of dragonflies, an interesting and thought provoking read.

These are small signs…. I still miss the physical presence of my little man, even though I know and feel that he is around.
