Well, off to Rancho Chico again and as always it was an adventure! We showed up Friday and Saturday morning and the power went out. Since we were in the middle of nowhere we had to wait until today to get power back..... so we had a candle lit weekend.
It amazes me how fast time goes by! I’m coming up on a year now and I feel like I am just getting started! But all is well here. I am still in Panuco and things are great here. The work is really moving forward and a lot of good is happening so that is keeping our excitement up!
I’m short on time but I just wanted to tell a story this week to keep us all thinking!
Once upon a time there were two families, both moving into new homes in southern Utah. Both had families of four and 2 cars. For their two cars they both found homes that fit 2 cars in the garage. These two families ended up finding their homes side by side and both were to move in the same day. They both arrived and unpacked their two uhauls full of their stuff.......
About a year went by and one of the families still were not able to get even one car into their garage due to all of the moving boxes that still occupied the garage (sounds familiar right?). In curiosity this family went to their neighbors and asked what they did to get their car into the garage (as it had been in there since the first day. This was their reply.
Oh! It was easy.... before we began to unpack we put our car in the garage so as it filled, the space for the car remained un-occupied. There is a lot we can learn from this. What do we have in our garage? Boxes that are of little value or are we putting first those things of higher value and priority before all the space (or time) is filled with useless things?
Have a great week!
