100 Reasons to Smile on a Monday

A man was walking along the beach at sunset. He came across a small boy picking something up and throwing it gently back into the ocean.

”What are you doing?” he asked the child.

“I’m throwing starfish back into the ocean” he replied, “The tide is going out and if I don’t throw them back they’ll surely die.”

“Son, don’t you realize that there are miles and miles of beach here, and hundreds of starfish, you can’t possibly make a difference!”

The boy listened politely, bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it gently back into the ocean.

The boy smiled at the man, “I made a difference for that one.”
