Perfect duo for July! Stars from our flag, and starfish from the summer sea!
Stars - we love them so much because they represent all of us shining and showcasing everyone for the best they can be!
Stars are something we look at from so far away, making wishes for what can seem unattainable.. and yet the reality of achieving or accessing our heart's desires keeps us waking up to a brand new day. Keep a star in your heart and let it guide you to all the amazing things yet to come.
And how do we know your wishes will come true?? Because YOU are made up of the same stuff as a star!
As for the starfish.... if you haven't read this story... enjoy this tribute to serving others with love and care.
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.”
