The Joy of Skipping Rocks

On those quiet summer evenings there is a joy to skipping on rocks around the lake.  It requires some methodical contemplation surmising where you want to hop  next by assessing the size, shape, and proximity of the rock.

In life we tackle those rocks each day sometimes they are smooth and round making it easy to jump. Other times – there are no options – we must leap onto the slippery and jagged rocks. All of this requires a certain amount of balance or we face the perilous option of falling into the biting depths of the cold water.

We have no control over certain outcomes in life but how we tackle each day is an exemplification of our strength. In that quiet strength there should be  pride that you took that big leap even knowing that you may fail landing head first into the water.

  1. Nicely done! Your story reminds me of one related to me by a friend. Here goes.
    My friend–let’s call him “Rick” since that’s his real name.–loved to go to the woods with his Dad, an avid outdoors-person. Rick, however, was not, at that time all that well graced with balance or dexterity and often found himself falling down, sometimes in the muck or water. After one such fall, his Dad turned around and said, “Rick, i need to tell you something important.”
    “What’s that, Dad?” he replied.
    “Make sure you put one foot on the ground before picking up the next one.”
    Goes well with your story, does it not?
