One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, What are you doing? The youth replied, Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them back, they'll die. Son,the man said, don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference! After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said I made a difference for that one. I love the story of the starfish. It is a reminder to me that sometimes its the small things in life that are the BIG things. Whether its for a friend, a teacher, or someone special in your life that makes a difference to you! This is a great gift! Its also a great secret santa gift!
