The Big Rocks

Today we went for a walk on the Terry Trueblood Trail. It’s been a while because we’ve been pretty busy doing a lot of things that take up a lot of time but are not so much fun. I had nearly forgotten how relaxing it can be to just do a simple thing like go for a walk and experience nature.

Afterward, Sena wanted to go shopping for rocks. That’s right, we paid money for rocks. They were for the garden. The whole trip today reminded me of Stephen Covey’s story about putting in the big rocks first. It’s about putting the important things first in your life. At certain stages in my life, that has been difficult. It’s a good thing we get reminders now and then to put the big rocks in first.
