Rocks instad of Roses?

When is a rock better than roses? No, I'm not talking diamonds...I'm talking a plain, old run-of-the-mill rock!

When my husband and I were dating we went for a walk along the railroad tracks by my parent's house one day and he picked up a rock then handed it to me with the following words.....

My love is like this rock; it's strong and solid, it'll never change, it'll last forever and there's not another one like it in the world.

In that moment I wouldn't have traded that piece of hardened earth for a million roses!

My husband passed away August 18th 2009 but I still have that rock -and the one I gave him another time - both (along with a printed/framed copy of his words to me) are displayed in the shadowbox my dad built to house special mementos of these precious 20 years of my life.

Although I miss him dearly - I haven't given up on love, romance or roses so watch for my next post!

Oh, Pamela. I am so sorry for your loss.

He sounds like a wonderful man. I'm glad you got to spend part of your lives together. I can only imagine the memories you made together.

I love the rocks. And I agree. I'd treasure them.

I''m having the worst luck with comments today, lol. Okay, trying again...

That is such a sweet love story and probably the most romantic one I've ever heard!

Pamela! Thank you for a beautiful, inspiring post!

Vanessa A. Johnson said...

How touching, Pamela. It's evident your husband lives on thru the precious memories you two shared.

Pamela S Thibodeaux said...

Glad you enjoyed the story, Virginia.

Thanks Maria - he was a very sweet and sentimental man and I was truly blessed to have him for so long.

Yeah, Faith, hard to imagine rocks being romantic but I hadn't heard that before ... nor since :-)

Yes Jean P, the memories are wonderful and thankfully, less painful ever day - as I told my brother in Dec... It's time to rejoice in what we shared.

He was the most romantic man I've ever heard of Doxymom - was always doing something sweet and funny :-)

Thanks Cate!

Yes, Jason I was truly blessed to have him - and I believe with all my heart God has another love for me...maybe not the same - for there'll never be another just like him - but just as sweet.

So glad you enjoyed the post Sarah!

Yeah Vanessa, our love lives on....

THANK you ALL for commenting!
