So....yesterday morning I walked the beach just before the bus came to bring me to work
I was looking for a little gift from the beyond
a trinket - a tiny treasure
to help me feel a connection with by beautiful step-daughter Ashley
who passed away on 28 February
But....I found nothing...not even a tiny shell
and then I saw that some one had placed stones all the way across the top
of the temporary barrier.
And I remembered the Jewish tradition of placing stones
on the top of gravestones of those we love
to say that we were here....and we remember you
I had stumbled upon an entire array of connections with Ashley
and yes, there is a connection,
and yes, she knows I loved her, that I love her still
and that I will never forget her
and yes, I know that she will never forget me.
