A Mosquito Into A Mule

So you know the old saying about:

Making a mountain out of a molehill


That’s when you make a big deal out of nothing.


So yesterday, I heard the European version of this as:

Making a mosquito into a mule


Honestly, I like that version a lot better.


A mosquito bites and is annoying.


But a mule resists and is a very stubborn animal that can drive you crazy. 


You definitely don’t want to make a mosquito into a mule! 😉

Your Everlasting Timeline

So I wanted to share this really smart thought about life and death:

“What is the most important part on a person’s tombstone?
The dash!
Why the dash?
Because it represents what a person has done between the date they were born and the date they died!”

We tend to wildly celebrate birthdays.


Also, we perform a remembrance (or memorial) on the date of a person’s death. 


But what is truly the significant part is what the person did during their life–the kind words, the good deeds, the positive influence that they had on people and the world around them. 


A simple dash between the DOB and DOD.


The small things are really the big things. 

No, an elaborate timeline of life events and doings.


Our time on Earth abbreviated, but not trivial at all. 😉
