biggest hill vs. smallest mountain
and i mentioned this hill?
this is cavanal hill which, according to the local chamber of commerce, is the tallest hill in the world. at 1,999 feet it is one small foot short of being an official mountain. from far away it looks a lot bigger but up close it just looks like another part of the landscape.
as chris and i were leaving oklahoma to head home after the trip, we drove right past cavanal hill and i pointed it out to him. i told him about it and wondered out loud "why someone didn't just go put a pile of dirt that was a foot high on the highest point and call it a mountain already?".
he simply responded "what is so special about being the shortest mountain in the world? wouldn't you rather the the world's tallest hill than the world's shortest mountain?"
hmmm... that made me think.
i love it when chris makes me think!
that simple thought could really be applied to so many areas of our lives. where are you striving to be so good and so "big" at something? should we be happy with our place in lives or should we pile an extra foot of dirt on our heads to fit in with the "bigger and better" folks out there?
just something to make you think today. :)
