This is not a typical Bede update rather a message.
The purpose of this blog was never to make everyone sad or heartbroken.
The joy of Bede is that he is so present in the now. He is enjoying his life and packing more love into it than most people do over decades.
After spending this morning walking by the beach with him and his dad I am filled with joy and love and brightness. I keep finding smiles welling up from deep within. That is Bede’s effect.
Bede is tired for the last few days, that is true, but we all have bad days. He is resilient and he is strong and even this morning he has been smiling, finding happiness in being held by his mum.
When we first heard the news of Bede we said to all our loved ones that while we appreciate the kindness of your sympathy we don’t want it. Instead use that energy on sending him love and light and positivity and prayers and filling his time here with all those things.
Share in our utter delight.
This blog is here to say… take note! There is an incredibly warm, bright, happy, loving soul on this earth and he might not be here long. Enjoy it while you can. There is weight and light and beauty and substance and grace and joy and brightness and depth and strength and composure and determinedness in him. Take from that and this blog whatever you like, but I sure hope sadness is not the only thing you take. That will not be Bede’s legacy, I assure you of that.
