Rocky Rocks

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Welcome to New Jersey!

We didn’t get here without some bumps in the road.

A faulty hose when we were emptying our tanks. A transmission in the Big Blue Treat Wagon making odd life decisions. Tires that are hanging on for the ride. And we can’t forget the fuel gauge that always says our tanks are full! That would be nice. But no.

We probably drove a bit too long for our liking without a break. But we didn’t want to get to camp too late because we weren’t sure if the site would fit us all in it. Then we got a call from the campground that someone was in our spot but maybe they would be gone when we got there.

So it was a long day. A rocky kind of day. But. We got there. The space was empty. We fit. And the persons made dinner.

A day after traveling means a day of rest. It’s the best feeling in the world to wake up in a new place. In fact, I’m not sure there’s a much better morning. So when we got up and hit the trails right outside our door, we were amazed. No, I didn’t see my reflection. But I did see so many rocks!

Big rocks, small rocks, a quiet forest and leaves falling all seemed to bring on a sense of appreciation. The world suddenly made sense. Even our previously rocky day made sense.

Because we all have rocky times and rocky days. But those rocks mixed in our life adds for variety and lessons learned help us to be our best.

Big rocks are too hard to move so we have to leave them there. Like bad memories. Bad experiences. Sometimes there is nothing we can do but to build other beauty around them.

Sometimes we can use our bad days on our good days. They make them better.

They build appreciation. Sometimes others can use them to not make the same ones.

Do you appreciate your rocky rocks?

New Jersey? We have a great week ahead. We don’t know what the next day or week will bring. But for now, we will hike among your rocks and pick your apples and lay on our beds among the chipmunks.

Stay tuned for our adventures this week after we get settled in today!
