Making a Difference



~~~~~~~~ Welcome to Sexual Health and Sex Guide. ~~~~~~~~~~

Making a Difference

One morning a man walked along the beach, and in the distance he could see someone dancing along the water's edge with a beautiful rhythmic movement. But as he got closer, he realized the person was not dancing.

She was stooping to pick up something and then turning, running and tossing the object into the waves. As he approached her, the man saw that she was picking up starfish on the beach and throwing them into the sea.

She stopped for a moment as he asked her, "What are you doing?" "The tide is going out, and these starfish stranded on the beach will die unless I throw them back into the ocean," she said. "But there are miles of beach and thousands of starfish," the man said. "You can't possibly make a difference."

Without responding, she bent over, picked up another starfish and hurled it into the ocean. "I made a difference to that one," she said. The man stood silent for a moment, then bent down, picked up a starfish, and threw it into the sea....

A nice reminder that even the smallest kindness or smile can often make such a difference in one person's life!

Cajun...Don't stop throwing those starfish! It's a risk and sometimes exhausting, I know. Just remember, one day you may become one of those who may need to be "tossed" back into life! For every hand held, for every smile uplifted, they will be returneded 10 fold!

Hugs for the day Cajun!

What a wonderful story, Cajun! It encapsulates one of the
most elemental properties of true humanity! You can hardly imagine
how greatful each starfish you are tossing back into life is.
