Rambling Man is back from his trip to Montana. He told me he had a little present for me when he got home. I couldn't imagine what it might be. And then he held out his hand and presented me with this Heart Shaped Rock.
It was the sweetest little gift.
I asked him where he found it. He told me that he was standing outside the hotel talking with his District Manager, and there it was. I asked him, 'What did he think when you picked up a heart shaped rock and put it in your pocket?'
He said he just laughed.
My Rambling Man is his boss.
He also brought me home these unusual striped rocks. Because he knows I collect striped rocks. He is thoughtful and funny that way.
I still can't get the picture out of my mind of 'The Boss' picking up a heart shaped rock for his wife.
It is so sweet.
He gave me this one, not too long ago. It is smooth and grayish blue, with a little indentation at the top.
This all started a few years ago when he and my youngest son 'D' were building me a stone wall along the walkway. They would drive down to the river in the truck and gather rocks for the wall. That is when 'D' found the first heart shaped rock. He gave it to me for Valentine's Day.
Next came this one. 'D' gave this to me on Mother's Day that year.
'D' found three of them that year. He presented me with this one on my birthday. They all sit at the base of the cedar trees alongside the walkway. Every time I go past, I see these sweet sentiments.
Then Rambling Man started finding them, too. He found the small one and set it next to one of 'D's.
These sweet Humble offerings mean so much. These are my very special 'Precious Stones'.
'Sweet Hearts' from my Sweethearts.
