What Matters?

A man found a long stretch of beach upon which hundreds of starfish had been stranded by a great storm. He observed a little girl cupping the starfish in her hands, one by one and gently placing them back into the ocean.

The man asked the little girl:
" What does it matter?
You'll never save them all anyway."
The little girl smiled softly and simply replied: "
It matters to the ones I save."

The simple pleasures of life matter

A phone call from a friend
A comment on your blog
An email from someone special
Children laughing and singing

A child's innocence

A simple thank you

A job well done

Being appreciated for that job
A smile from a stranger
A wink, a nod, or a nudge
A quiet walk on the beach
Sand between your toes

A warm kiss from the sun

The stars shining bright in the sky

Friends Like You Matter to Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You definately should win some kind of blogging award for 'pictures to post' or something. You are really quite good at it.

Meeting up with you was a fluke.. but I as so glad that we have had this time to get to know one another because you are such a beautiful person. Seriously, so happy that i had this chance.

I agree. If everyone took the attitude that they can't solve all the world's problems, then nothing would ever get done.
