My Rock…

We recently watched some of the movies starring “The Rock.”  I love the “Game Plan” & “Tooth Fairy.”  The basic premise of a big tough guy learning to become sensitive to little girls silly ways, has a resounding theme at our house.  Since our BIG guy is outnumbered three to one. 

But I wonder just what this actor had in mind when he selected the nickname “The Rock.”    I don’t think you can think about rocks without thinking about strength. 

I think of a big rock, a mountain.  I think of a place you go to get some perspective.  You can climb up that mountain and take a look around and put things in their proper place.  The mountain helps you do that.  You can find peace on it.  When you are standing at the top of that mountain, you can see all the valleys, and the depths from which you came.  You can see new heights you’ve never imagined before.  The mountain is always there.  No matter what the weather is, it is there.  The mountain lets you know that everything will be OK. 

I have had the fortune of having several Rocks in my life, my husband, my father, and other men I’ve adopted into my family.    I want to thank each of them for being there, for being a rock for me; for their example, for their love, for their strength.  Thank you for reminding us that no matter how bad things may seem, it will be OK.
