A man went for a walk one day. He seemed to be searching for something as he hurried about, "Just a rock covered in dirt nothing special he says while he walks away". A little girl walking down the same path carefully inspects each rock She examines each one and than picks up the same rock that the man had rejected. She holds it in her hands lifts it up toward the sun and says," you may not look like much outside , but I have a feeling that your true worth lies within you". She excitedly skips down the path and brings it home and proudly presents the rock to her father. He carefully takes the rock and breaks it open and discovers the treasure that lies within, a geode that is sparkling like diamonds in the light. In life people at times are too quick to judge according to appearances alone. They hurry through life seem to be searching for something but not taking time to discover what life has to offer us through one another. They might even perceive that another person is like dirt,and with that misconception they miss out in discovering another's true worth. Upon closer examination they might discover that the other person has many great qualities and can become a treasured friend. If only they would slow down and take the time to take a closer look so that they don't miss the hidden treasure that lies within.
