  • Thanks for this article. We are always keeping busy and don't always take time for the "rocks". We need to start putting ourselves first to be healthy to help our family.

    I have heard this story before, but I think it is always good for us to remember what is truly important. I think everybody has a period in their life when they get to caught up making or doing life, rather than enjoy it. Thank you for sharing! - 5/19/2016 11:21:44 PM

  • And the female professor took the jar and poured in a cup of coffee which found its way between the rocks and grain of sand. The moral of the story: there is always time for a cup of coffee with friends. - 12/10/2012 8:40:30 AM
