Forest for the trees

“Can’t see the forest for the trees” has always been one of my favorite expressions. I was reminded of that this week on a trip to Weiss lake in Alabama. I “accidentally” overheard an older couple arguing about work that needed to be done around their lake house, and they were really going at it! They were furious with each other. I thought it was odd that anyone could be so angry in such a beautiful place, but they had lost sight of the beauty by focusing on the small things rather than the bigger picture. I’ve done that in recent years with my own family. I focused on the little things I wanted to do each day rather than the amazing family I was blessed with. And I guess many of us do that, but believe me… don’t make a habit of it. You don’t want to lose your own little slice of heaven just because you failed to really appreciate it. Thanks for reading my blog.
