Big Bend: You Reminded Us
Your park rangers reminded us that a little bit of kindness goes a long way.
Your massive rocks reminded us how small we are. They reminded us to have perspective, especially when everyday things start to stress us out.
Your prickly plants reminded us to have boundaries. Because without knowing how close to get to something or someone, you can unnecessarily get hurt.
Your visitors reminded us that there is more in community than in solitude. Experiences are illuminated in a certain way when shared with others.
Your rushing river reminded us that it is possible to get through hard times. And that it’s much easier with a partner and something to support you.
Your tourists reminded us to be curious and that there are many different ways to see the same thing.
Your blue sky reminded us that life is better in color. And color is everywhere.
Your hot spring reminded us that alongside the freezing rivers of life, there is warmth.
Your long stretches of road reminded us that amazing things may take a long time to get to, but they’re worth the wait.
