Rocks - The Important Things in Life

This is one of my favourite stories!

When I was studying engineering, my uni friends used to add another chapter to it saying the professor then poured beer in over the sand. They thought this showed them that no mater what else you put in your life, there was always time for beer!

On a more serious note, I got a pretty jar, a fine black marker and some polished rocks for a friend of mine who was having a hard time. We worked out what were the important things in her life and actually labelled those rocks and put them in the jar. She keeps it at home to remind her. I might do the same for myself one day.

Thanks so much for your story, what a great idea to label the rocks, I shall be coping your idea. It is so easy to get caught up rushing around and forget what is really important.
Smooth rocks are also so beautiful.
I love the students and the beer!

I was going to write a post today titled Get Real WORLD but I do not want this important post about the real things that matter in our lives to disappear so instead I shall just comment here. Remember the rocks are the important things in your life!
I really am quite sick of all the things we clutter our lives with Stuff, stuff, stuff. Close down your computer go for a walk and if you see anyone give them a great big smile.
Have a wonderful day where ever you are, slow down, relax and be kind to yourself and others.
