Tommy Dragonfly ... is Reality Today

TODAY ... NOVEMBER 28, 2015

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.

Today, I had an appointment at Dystinkd Tattoo here in Louisburg, NC with Jason Wilkins, owner and tattoo artist.  215 S Bickett Blvd, Louisburg, NC 27549   ...  (919) 265-7353 ).

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!  :)
