Skipping Stones!

This picture was taken last year,
I love it.
We were on a rocky slope,
I  knew that I could not get down,
So I sent him on his way,
I was sitting at a bench, I told him that I was okay,
So  off he went down the rocks, 
and went out by the water,
He picked up a rock and threw it,
the joy of skipping stones.
He spent quite a time down there,
finding the right stones, 
throwing them and looking back at me,
his chest inflated, wanting to show off,
I put my thumb in the air,
and he knew that I was watching.
what I loved most of all,
was that he was carefree,
and so relaxed.
For a few moments of the day,
he did not have to think of me,
or wonder if I would be okay,
Down there on that shore,
he was worry free.
Just skipping stones
in the early morning breeze,
The next day we went back again,
and I made it all the way down.
He tried to teach me,he stood behind me
and tried to show me how to hold my arm
and when I would throw my rock,
it would just drop under the water,
slinking slowly further and further down.
We tried for quite a time, we had a lot of laughs,
Soon I was tired and had to sit down,
I sat on a big boulder,
and watched him still at play,
and wondered how many guys
have tried to impress a girl this way.
It meant more to me than diamonds
as I watched my husband enjoying
the art of skipping stones.
a while later. hand in hand we walked  back up to the top,
We sat on a bench listening to the running water,
saw an eagle flying overhead.
After a little while we saw a wedding party,
making their way down the rocks,
they were waiting for some other people
to get there, and what did the groom proceed to do.
He picked up a rock and soon was skipping stones.
My husband leaned over and kissed me.
We soon were watching a wedding,
the bride was gorgeous,
their dogs were there running around,
and it really was beautiful.
Just before we left,
my husband reached into his pocket,
and placed in my hand.
a perfect flat rock.
just right
for skipping stones.
To me it was 
special that 
he found
a rock
representing that we would come again,
and one day  not too far off,
we would both be
skipping stones.
The above is a true story,
and I have never learned how to skip a rock.
I hope you enjoy your Monday,
and that you make some memories
that you will cherish.
I am embracing my day,
as soon as I wake up.
Have your best day Ever!
