An old pledge

July 13, 2019

 

There was a day of course, when it all began. An ordinary day like any other. 
But for one pile of stones, that ordinary day took an extraordinary course: They were summoned for what's considered the greatest honor in a stone's life, being part of a family's home. From the moment they made it to the chosen site, all nicely chiseled and shaped, they learned that with the ultimate honor came a huge responsibility, an eternal promise they had to fulfill. Sure they would be one family's most cherished place on earth, a pampered and revered one, but also a shelter and source of comfort, through life's moody swings and hard hits. Sure they'd have the privilege to partake in the succession of heartwarming joys and milestones, but they'd also silently carry the weight of the many heartbreaks and pains. In essence, from that day forward, their destiny and that of their proteges would become one.

They made that pledge that day, back at the very beginning. Yes, they made that pledge, that day, an ancient past ago, and never broke it.
