Have you ever been to the top of any mountains?
Korea is a very small country in land area, but it has many mountains. About 70% of the land is covered with mountains. Most of them are not very high though. Anyone could climb to the top of them.
When you’re at the top of these mountains, if you yell something, you would be able to hear echoes.
Whatever you say, the mountains will echo back to you. If you yell, “I’m tired and beat!” they will echo back “I’m tired and beat!” If you yell, “I’m so happy!” the mountains will echo back “I’m so happy!”
It is the holiday season. We have to get all our cards and gifts ready.
Like the way it is very tiring to climb up mountains, sometimes buying and packaging gifts and writing cards can be tedious and unpleasant.
However, just like the way the air is cool, crisp, and refreshing at the top of the mountain, and the feeling you get when you yell at the top of your lungs when you’re up there, it is gratifying to see the happy look on the faces of your family and friends when they open the gifts and cards you got for them.
Whenever you do good things for others, the good things will echo back to you like the way your voice echoes in the mountains.
Have a wonderful week and I hope that you get into the spirit of giving!
