I Thought of Tommy Today ...

Photos of boiled eggs I was taking shells off earlier today.  This is when I thought of my son, Tommy.  He loved boiled eggs, he would always mysteriously appear when I boiled eggs ... even when he wasn't home ... he would be coming in the door.

Sometimes, when I feel Tommy ... I take photos hoping ... hoping for some kind of sign ... oh silly me, I'm just a grieving mother. Gloria Faye Brown Bates/Granny Gee

Today ... I was taking the shells off the boiled eggs in photo above.  I thought about Tommy, how he always appeared whenever I made boiled eggs.

Tommy would always ask to get one, and of course ... I would smile, tell him to eat all he wanted ... and he didn't have to shell them ... I had already done it.

Today was no different ... I thought of Tommy.  Not only that, I decided I would take photos of the boiled eggs ... who knows ... maybe I would see a ... sign ... in one of my photos that ... Tommy was here!  Does that sound silly?  It may be ... but, that's what I did, regardless.

I've sat here ... looking at each photo hoping I'd see something mysterious ... I only see a flash of light from my cellphone camera.  I wondered ... do you see anything?

I just 'feel' Tommy is near at certain times whenever there's something he loved.  Maybe it's wishful thinking by a grieving mother.

Yes, I fully expected ... something ... when I was peeling those eggs :)


  1. If you can feel him near to you then that's all that is necessary. He was there, whether the pictures show it or not.

  2. No one will ever forget Tommy. He was a special person and loved by everyone! Love, Ms. Nancy
