Mole Hills or Mountains
By Don Iannone

Mole hills have a way of growing
into mountains in our lives, and
we have a great deal to do
with these miraculous transformations.
Yes indeed, small problems become large ones, when
we use a magnifying glass or a microscope, when
we should use a telescope in sizing up situations.
We should consult our inner sage on these matters,
and seek guidance on how
to keep things in perspective.
It's funny--because
most inner sages I know
prescribe a natural remedy--
called "give things time."
This remedy, as we all know, means
letting the mole hill decide for itself
whether it wants to stay a mole hill,
or become a mountain.

Given enough time the mountains will become molehills and eventully disappear altogether.

Rob...thanks, and you are so right. Just think at one time the Appalachian Mtns. were just as rugged as the Rockies and now look at that...rounded and worn down by time...just like some folks I know. LOL.

Left to themselves, I think molehills don't grow into mountains.

With a grain of lack of faith I can move mole hill to mountains in a flash!!
