Day 1 Favorite hobbit
Sam is undoubtedly one of the most deep yet simple portrayals of friendship and loyalty. He doesn’t need to understand “big things” to achieve them and without his will of steel and strength of heart Frodo’s mission would have failed in the very end.
Just as it happens in life. Some of our biggest journeys need a friend who supports what we’re doing and remind us we’re not as alone as we think.
As I’m reading the final 100 pages of The Return of the King, Sam reminds me more than ever why I absolutely love his character and why I believe he’s the true hero in this. He’s the best. He was just a naive gardener who loved Elves, realized the mess he got himself into, but kept going no matter what. My inspiration right here. There aren’t enough words to describe how great and cool he is. Update: I’m laughing so hard right now because I’m reading the part where Sam has to get rid of his lovely pans. “The clatter of his precious pans as they fell down into the dark was like a death-knell to his heart.” Poor Sam lol It’s just one of his many sacrifices, but I’m sure this one’s the most difficult.
