In Memory of...Rocks

We started this tradition in our home when our cousin Steve was tragically killed in an accident. It was inspired by my mom and aunt who paint their grandchildren's names on rocks and place them throughout their yard.

Since we don't attend grave sites of our loved ones very often, I thought painting a memory rock would allow us to reflect on the people we love and miss everyday.
It is also a helpful way for children to remember their lost pets. We lost our cat Sebastian last year. In honor of him, we painted a cat rock. Now every time we walk outside we reminisce about his silly ways. A beautiful story was also written in honor of Sebastian. (Read it here on the story time experiment blog, CAT COME BACK)
This is not a tradition I look forward to doing, but I love walking around my yard and remembering the impact each loved one had on my life.
