One Step at a Time
Recently I settled down for a bit of rest and TV. There were some scenes in black and white of various breeds of dogs on a beach. The views presented one dog at a time, sometimes a puppy, sometimes and adult dog. Some dogs ran, some played in the water, some napped on the rocks.
My mind started to relax. All of a sudden, seeing the rocks by the water, my imagination re-played a rock I have. My small rock is white and naturally shaped like a heart. It was given to me by a neighbor years ago.
"I found this under my oak tree, and I think it is for you."
I have to hold this rock in my hand right now! Where is it? I had organized things lately (oh no) and it may have been moved or put away. I searched in the first logical place, not there. I was becoming irritable. I really wanted to reconnect with the little heart rock and quickly.
I went through my dishes of rocks. I have many random rock and shell displays. My heart leaped up with joy! There it is!
Soul to Soul
I quickly carried the little rock into my living room along with some other stones from a creek bed in the Pennsylvania mountains. As I placed the pieces on the mantel, I felt but did not see a golden light with me. Recently my neighbor had passed away. She told me she would be in touch. I felt her close and loving! I lingered a bit at the mantel enjoying a light hearted moment. As the golden light faded, I paused to ponder the wonder and joy of the windows, doors, and dimensions of our lives.
