See it…

Hiding in the bottom of my purse…

It does not look special or different sitting among the other rocks…

Nor special among the leaves…

But it is very special to me. Mr. C  and I have been married for 34 years and that little rock has been with me the entire time. Mr. C  loves to collect rocks from various places and he picked this one up from a deer lease. This deer lease was one of his favorite places to be and is located outside of Vanderpool in the Texas Hill Country near Lost Maples State Park. He found this one, polished and shined it up, sealed it with something to keep it shiny and during our first year of marriage he gave this rock to me. He told me it was just a little rock but he wanted me to carry it with me and whenever I saw it to remember that he loves me and will always be there for me. So even though this is just a little rock to some folks, this little rock is special to me. And my dear husband continues to be my rock that I lean on and love very much. Thanks honey for being my rock.
