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.
I loved this article.It helps alot to put life's big and little things in the right place. I agree with sandraleet, in my life God goes first in the foundation. This was inspirating and I will use this in my life. Thanks
I have heard this before and have drawn a jar with each of these three materials in it. The rocks are labeled as are the pebbles. This makes a great beginning activity for school. It makes a great art project and/or journal entry. These labeled things sometimes change. What a wonderful reminder for me today! THANKS!!
Thanks for this article. My life is indeed full, but I donīt always make the time for the "rocks,"and sometimes feel guilty for deciding to take care of myself in the fitness and health categories.

I agree with LHORSEY. I think exercise is important, but definitely not a rock. I do try to exercise most days and it can easily take time away from time spent with my children. My children are older so they don't demand as much of my time, but when they were younger I would have definitely had to choose.

Hmm. Maybe I'm being a "glass half empty" person but what if exercising causing you to neglect your family??

Yes, I agree. It really puts things into perspective and it's a great story to re-tell.
