    Incredible image! Marbles have a special meaning in our family, my husbands father passed away more than 30 yrs ago. He collected marbles. We live in a different house in a different state,but every year when we till our garden to prepare it for summer,we find a marble. We actually just found another yesterday. I believe it's a sign to my husband and children that he is watching them from above. Thanks so much for sharing this photo!
