in the distance  }

oh so many things popped in my head on this one!
so many!

one thing...
how much i love jenn's little boot wearing guy there... he is GREAT...
and
how there are days i feel just like jenn's little boot wearing guy there.
striving... hiking... moving along... to get to all those things off in the distance.
and i'll be the first to say... "bleh"!
hills stink when you've been hiking for miles!
some days it just isn't easy.
at all.

days we feel like we take two steps forward and one step back.
i don't know about you but...
i do have to remind myself and often...
that... that one step back is OK.
it builds our patience... character and our determination...
AND.............
there could have been a big 'ol muddy hole right in front of us...
we would have fallen right in had we not hopped back for a quick rest.
not good!
standing there all covered in mud!
yep... stand firm on that rock you just stepped back onto...
it's ok.
all that good off in the distance... past that muddy hole... you'll get there!

yesterday while on one of those rocks...
i noticed lil bit... off in the distance... taking a peek of herself.
i wondered what she might be thinking.
does she see what i see?
how smart she is... how very special.
one thing is certain...
had i been rushing to get to the next rock or in that muddy hole...
i might have missed seeing her cuteness.

today...
by all means... let's take some big leaps forward... get to jumping...
just keep our eyes and heart open to the great rock under foot today.
