When Jasmine and I were at the bottom of the large portion of Burgess Falls on Monday, I was looking for a rock or two to bring home to add to our waterfalls feature in our yard.
It is something we do when we visit somewhere that has some interesting rocks. A simple way to bring a memory back from elsewhere and add it to a spot we look at and admire.
While at the edge of the water looking through the vast rocks along the shore, Jas took a photo of a large rock. I joked that I should bring it home, but truth was, it was a nice rock, but not extremely showy or incredible to look at. I was wrong.
Jasmine went home and adjusted the filters with her photo program to show the beauty she had seen there at the edge of the water.
What a gift to have. And when I saw the rock after knowing what I saw for myself in person, it made me realize that she also makes me feel like that rock: Bits recognized that might be hidden to some.
It also caused me to think of those that I am seeing in bad light in my life and how I need to change the filter so that I can see the hidden areas that create a positive emotion instead of a negative one.
What a simple lesson from a rock and a friend.
