We have been MIA for a few weeks as we ave ad some unforeseen circumstances arise. Being relatively new to this world, I still struggle wit keeping up with my work while my world is changing.
Early this month, over Memorial Day weekend, my dear husband lost his sweet grandmother. Although she was in her 90’s her passing was still quite a shock to the entire family as she was in amazing health. We traveled north to say our goodbyes and to spend some much needed time with family. It was good to see everyone, despite the sad circumstances. Ruby was the glue that held her family together and one last time, we all gathered in her honor. She looked beautiful as she always did and the service went well.
As we made the long trek home after the service, we stopped at Kingdom Come State Park to let the pup run and to look at the amazing mountain view one last time before heading home. I am in love with the mountains. While most people would prefer to go to the beach, my hear lies in the magnificent view on the mountain tops. And to be able to share the mountains that raised my husband with him, it is a magnificent thing.
While at the park, my son and his pup were out running around trying to get rid of some of the crazy energy they always seem to have. While running, my son happened upon a rock. Have you heard about the new rock craze? The one where people paint rocks and then leave them places for others to find in order to brighten their day? Well, my son happened upon a Kentucky Basketball one. If you know my family, UK ball is life so it was super fitting for the moment. And it achieved what the artist had set out to accomplish. It made us smile during a difficult time. While there is the option to hide the rock somewhere else so someone else could find it, my son opted to keep it as it has brought him great comfort.
If you have never heard about the painted rocks, check some of them out on Facebook. Bowling Green KY Rocks is one of them. It is a cute idea and lots of people enjoy participating. It is a good craft for the kids to help with and even more fun to hunt.
