Rocks ! ! !

Anne sat looking at the night sky. The full moon was a day away and it was already spectacular. She reflected on how fast time was passing. Her granddaughter was starting kindergarten in a week. It seemed as if she just went to Ella’s preschool graduation . . .

With the sun burning her arm as she drove to the store, Anne was happy she was on her way to her Ella’s preschool graduation. It would start in two hours, which gave her time to shop before the commencement ceremony. Anne wanted to get a little gift to hand to Ella after she received her diploma. After the ceremony, Ella would walk to the group of relatives taking pictures in the audience. Anne shopped
for something special for the 5 and half year old.

Getting a cart Anne walked the children’s section from start to finish looking for a different, special something for her oldest granddaughter.  It had to be something the little princess didn’t have. She loved drawing, painting, playing with Barbie and anything a princess would like to
do. However, Anne looked for that different item that would capture Ella’s interest.

Finally, Anne came across a rock painting kit. It had five flat looking rocks, a book on rock painting and of course, it had paints and a brush. That was her choice through the myriad of crafts from which she had to choose. As she walked to the check out, Anne picked up a gift bag completing her purpose. Quickly, she was on her way to the preschool graduation.

Anne arrived early enough to find chairs to sit in however, the family chose to stand by the wall and take pictures from there. Impressed with the play, the Wizard of Oz, the audience cheered for all participants and some relatives cried when the children received their diploma. All went well and Ella received her flowers, cards and Anne’s sedimentary gift.

The family met for an early dinner afterword and took more pictures. Finally, it was time to go home. Kisses given, goodbyes
could be said. All departed to their cars. Anne went home feeling satisfied she had given a gift Ella would like. It wasn’t until the next evening she found
out how much.

Anne was out all day so in the evening she relaxed in front of the television. Occasionally, she heard a signal on her phone from a player of Words with Friends. She eagerly grabbed the phone to make her word during commercials. Then another signal came and another. All of the players she signed up with were active that night. Anne was enjoying the games when she heard a different sound. It was a text from her son. Anne tapped her phone to read the text and found a picture. It was of the rocks Ella had painted. The caption under the picture read, “Ma, you hit the nail on the head!
