While hiking at the Mill of Kintail last week, I came across this heart rock on one of the boardwalks.
A few weeks ago, I woke up and looked out my bedroom window to see this collection of hearts on my neighbours’ lawn, in celebration of their 60th wedding anniversary.
Over the years, I’ve encountered heart-shaped rocks in several locations, including during a Habitat for Humanity build in Bolivia. That heart became part of the foundation of the house we built together.
My niece went to an amethyst mine near Thunder Bay and brought me back this sample.
When I come across an unexpected heart, it always makes my smile. I think we all need a little lift these days, am I right?
May my found hearts help to lift yours. What are your favourite hearts?
Thanks for the whole-hearted lift today, Arlene. I think heart shapes in nature are even more significant than 4-leaf clovers.
There’s much to love in this post, especially your volunteering in Habitat for Humanity in Bolivia . . . perhaps a purple heart for that!
My favorite heart is the heart my husband drew for the family tree in my memoir.
Oh yes, that would be a good one. I have never found a four-leaf clover, but my daughter has found several. I guess she is luckier than I am. But I do seem to stumble upon hearts quite often, so I’m lucky in a different way.
My favorite heart is a small heart necklace made of diamond pave. It’s about the snazzy piece of jewelry I own. Z-D got it for me on my 40th birthday, which I didn’t handle all that well. Until I got some nice jewelry.
I had to look up pavé – I’d never heard of that before. I can picture your necklace now. It would be beautiful, and the perfect thing to turn a birthday around. But, 40? – pish tosh. ‘Tis nothing! I just turned 58, and life gets better every year.
hmm . . . cinnamon heart candies are fun.
Yes! I love the way they look all bundled together in a big red happy pile too.
Love is in the air!!
Always! Even when we have to look hard to see it. 🙂
