MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN SMALL WAYS

Family and Friends,

IMAG1198

WE must not,

in trying to think about how we can make a big diference,

ignore the small daily difference we can make which,

over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot forsee.

And whatsoever ye do,do it heartily

One can make a difference.

You can make a difference.

I can make a difference.

The Boy and the Starfish

A man was walking along a deserted beach at sunset. As he walked he could see a

young boy in the distance, as he drew nearer he noticed that the boy kept bending

down, picking something up and throwing it into the water.

Time and again he kept hurling things into the ocean.

As the man approached even closer, he was able to see that the boy was picking up

starfish that had been washed up on the beach and, one at a time he was throwing

them back into the water.

The man asked the boy what he was doing, the boy replied,”I am throwing these

washed up starfish back into the ocean, or else they will die through lack of water.

“But”, said the man, “You can’t possibly save them all, there are thousands on this

beach, and this must be happening on hundreds of beaches along the coast. You can’t

possibly make a difference.”

The boy looked down, frowning for a moment; then bent down to pick up another

starfish, smiling as he threw it back into the sea. He replied,

“I made a huge difference to that one!”
