I'm a firm believer that God "winks" at me from time to time reassuring me that everything is going to be OK and that I one day will be reunited with Scott.
For those of you who might've lost someone very close to your heart this might happen to you occasionally as well. Funky things happen to me all the time and I pause and say, Thanks Scott.... I needed that."
One weekend this summer Savannah and I invited ourselves to our sister Kayla's float trip, that was originally planned with all of her friends. While we were floating we stopped on the bank and while we were sitting enjoying the day I looked down and saw this rock... So tiny.
Think about all of the rocks the Buffalo River...I mean come on. TONS. There is no way to count them all. Why the world would I go to the river at this exact time, sit at this exact place, look down at my feet and find this very unique rock. Totally weird, but I took it as a sign that Scott approved that all of us girls are enjoying the day together and that he was with us. I placed the rock in my kayak and took it home.
Fast forward two days, Scott's friend (and mine) Jessica, lost her sweet son.
Side note: When I say that they were friends, I mean CLOSE friends. Just has a tattoo on her side of "SS" for crying out loud. So awesome. They were extremely close. So the significance of the letter "S" something very dear to us. (Snowden/Squires you get what I mean.)
I was standing in the kitchen... Washing a dish and staring at the rock.... I had this overwhelming feeling that comes over my body from time to time and I knew what I was supposed to do.
I said, (literally out loud) "Scott, did you give this to me to give to Jess?" I got chills. Bonafide chills. I then said, "Hunter is with you isn't he." Needless to say, she had it the next day.... The rest is history. Jessica had it "wrapped" and now she can wear it as a necklace, key-chain, put it on the rear view mirror... hang it wherever.
Y'all can think I'm bat sh crazy LOL but I'm a firm believer that I got a "wink" that day. God "winks" at us from time to time if you just slow down and listen.
I miss my brother EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. EVERYDAY. But I know with our faith, I'll see him again.
