It just looks like a little rock. And it is. But that little rock can mean so much. It all depends on who’s looking at it.
In your shoe it can ruin a long walk, taking your focus off the beauty around you, the conversation offered and the serenity just being outside can bring.
Set in a little gold band, in the hand of your beloved in front of you on one knee it is a symbol of all the love, hope and promise a shared life can be.
On a x-ray it can explain a pain in the kidney or gallbladder.
In the hand of a shepherd boy it can bring down a giant.
Most things in life are meaningless and as simple as a small rock. It’s what you make of it, what you think of when you see it, what makes it important and special to you that determines it’s worth. If it matters to you, it matters. It’s really that simple. If it doesn’t matter to you but it matters to someone who does, then you have to decided if you are going to match their value or not.
Look around you. What has meaning to you? What does it remind you of? who does it remind you of? What have you held onto and what have you tossed? What is special to you?
