This video is simple, powerful, heart warming, and so very, very true!
It was inspired by the loss of a loved one but the message and gift that person left is still resonating throughout the world as I share it with you.
It reminds me of the Starfish story…
A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched her with amusement.
She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”
The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied,
“Well, I made a difference to that one!”
We all have the power to make a difference in the world on this Christmas Eve, I’m doing exactly what this video asks us to do, passing on and sharing ONE gift…
