That’s a phrase I heard quite often in my life, especially from my Granddaddy.
Now you are thinking what does that mean? Let me explain….
There are some things that must be done right.
A house must be square.
A engine must run with precise timing.
Crop rows must be straight for the tractor or mules.
There are a lot of things (in my Granddaddy’s mind) that just don’t matter.
That picture is a little bit crooked…. You’ll never notice it on a galloping horse…..
The fence post is not set right… You’ll never notice it on a galloping horse…..
You missed a small spot of paint at the top of the house…You’ll never notice it on a galloping horse…..
I kind of get his point…there are things in my life that really matter and I want them done correctly. I would guess the same would be with you.
There are those things you care about but you don’t become overly concerned about. Those are the things that…You’ll never notice it on a galloping horse…..
If someone drives, walks, stands by they will not notice it.
It’s the things that you would notice, but no one else will.
I guess it was his way of saying don’t sweat the small stuff.
I use that phrase more and more every day. Thanks for teaching me what’s important.
