Grief and stones

Originally intended for the garden, I couldn’t actually put them in the garden because I feared rain and sun would make them fade over time. Already fearing Riley’s memory would fade with time, I needed these to stay vibrant. So, since Riley’s memorial five and a half years ago, these stones have lived in a wicker basket in the corner of my living room. Today, I decided to use them to cover the cement patch in front of my fireplace... holding each one, reading it as if for the first time, and placing them where they can be admired. I don’t think I’ll want to repair the cement patch any longer. I wish I’d thought of this sooner. Can you see yours? #rileyforever
