Two Glasses of Wine

My friend Andrea, divas*duds posted this in our group, PrimRoses. I'm so happy that she did. It is a wonderful reminder of what is truly important in life!

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 glasses of wine...

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.. The pebbles rolled Into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two glasses of wine from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. 'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things; your family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions; things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.' The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else; the small stuff. 'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you' 'Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. Do one more run down the ski slope. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first; the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the wine represented. The professor smiled. 'I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of glasses of wine with a friend.'

Thanks for sharing this with me Andrea!

I've Been Tagged!

I've been taggeb by Christi, moppetsclosets! OK, here it goes:
Here are the rules:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Seven facts:
1)I have started taking piano lessons again. I started almost 2 years ago and am so happy that I did.
2) Until 6 years ago, I always lived in states that touched the ocean or a gulf and living in a land locked state makes me feel a little clostrophobic.
3) I love to travel! My family always says I'm happiest when I'm on vacation!
4) I love anything pink!
5) I really don't like birds except for flamingos (they're pink).
6) In my life, I've been attacked by 4 birds, guess that's why I don't like them
7) My daughter caught a wild baby bunny 2 years ago, and to everyone's amazement (including the vet), it's still alive. I've tried to release it, but it won't leave. My family now calls me "the rabbit whisperer"
