Found diamonds in your backyard?????
The story begins with a story teller on a boat in the Middle East. The man told of a rich man, Ali Hafed, who sold his land and goods in order to go in a worldwide search of diamonds. The man who bought his land found diamonds in the back yard - the diamond-mine of Golconda, the most magnificent diamond-mine in all the history of mankind. The moral of the story being are you taking the time to look in your own backyard for riches (and taking the time to enjoy them)?
This weekend, I had immense pleasure as I literally sat in my backyard as my daughter splashed in a kiddy pool, and my wife and I made summer plans. This posting started to formulate as I saw the blessings of my backyard and the time to enjoy them. This will come as little surprise if you read my last blog entry and comments and see the high value that I place on family and the time to enjoy them.

So, how are you mining the diamonds that are in your backyard, and taking the time to enjoy them?
