I've been looking for love lately..............

On the long afternoon walks, with Sophie............
I search the grounds along the rocked drive that leads up to our home.........
I found this heart shaped rock............

along the back road of the cotton field..............
I glanced down and saw this one.............

along one of the paths in the woods................
I almost stepped over this one...............

along the hard packed ground around the chicken yard
this was glistening in the sun..................

and this one I love the most..........found on the path up to the water well..
a heart that looks beaten and worn..........

Maybe not every one can see the heart shape "love " in these rocks..........but isn't that the way it is with all of us,...........when it comes to the matters of the heart?
Where one sees only a cold stone...............others can see the heart and soul full of love?
What do you think??
Happy Valentine's Day!

Lovely post, Kathleen. I'm not surprised that you see hearts everywhere because you have a big heart yourself! :)

In my jewelry box, I have a beautiful heart shaped rock my youngest daughter found when she was four! It's one of my favorite treasures!

Our grandson loves to look for rocks that have special shapes. Now, I will keep my eyes open for hearts. Hope you have had a great V- Day!

That is soooo cool Kathleen. Billy looks for rocks everywhere he goes and we keep them in a pretty jar in the kitchen. I will have to tell him to look for Rocks that are Heart shape from now on. I think they would even be a nice gift to someone you care about any time of year. Thank you for sharing
Hugs

Belated hearts day wishes to you, Kathleen. Your comments about being able to see a heart was very appropriate and yes I could see the hearts in your collection, especially the white stone.

Your analogy is spot on! Your hearts warm my heart, even though they are stone.

Wow! I love those heart-shaped rocks. They are so pretty. I guess if we looked closly enough, we could find heart shapes in a lot of nature. Great posting.
