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. "

 

A Starfish Story Volunteering in Your Community

 

We can all make a difference when we choose kindness, a hand up, a smile, a wink, a nod, and something as simple as holding a door open for someone. We can get out into our communities and help our neighbors. We can check on them and see if they need anything. We can volunteer in shelters, in schools, in nursing homes. Lake Arrowhead is always looking for help and volunteers in our community. We can foster children and pets. We don't have to spend a lot of money, our time is so valuable. While we cannot make a difference to everyone, even if we just make a difference to ONE. It only takes one, one who will then remember the kindness, pay it forward and pass it on. 

This Christmas season and all the year through, let us remember that kindness is what can bring someone through a storm you have no idea they are going through. Kindness can turn a really bad day into a good one. Kindness can save a persons life when they don't feel their worth or contribution to society and themselves. Kindness creates more kindness. 

Be the little boy. Have the heart and innocence of a young child when they truly believe, in their hearts, every single thing they do can and will make a difference - because it generally does!
