The Obstacle in our Path

In ancient times, a king had his men place a boulder on a roadway. He then hid in the bushes and watched to see if anyone would move the boulder out of the way. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers passed by and simply walked around it.

Many people blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none of them did anything about getting the stone removed.

One day, a homeless man came along carrying vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the homeless man laid down his burden and tried to push the stone out of the way. After much pushing and straining, he finally managed.

After the homeless man went back to pick up his vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and note from the King explain that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the road.

Moral of the story: Every obstacle that we come across gives us an opportunity to improve our circumstances, and while the lazy complain, others are creating opportunities through their kind hearts, generosity, and willingness to get things done.

An old story which we hear from time to time – which reminds us of the value of consideration for others and thoughtfulness. Thank you to the staff and volunteers and friends of Cheshire – who we so appreciate – and who help move boulders every day. We are so proud of the opportunities that have been created through your generosity! We open our minds and hearts to ideas and suggestions in order to grow and move forward along this path. There are days when the roads are blocked by boulders and these can only be moved by people who have a positive attitude and a will to succeed. Boulders are temporary. Boulders are moved quicker with teams. Thank you to all the teams involved at Cheshire for moving boulders so that we may continue our journey together!

Our Home is happy and operational because of the obstacles that have

been removed by wonderful people. Have a boulder free month!
