Quote of the Day

During a sunrise walk, a person was seen dancing through the waves in the sand. Every now and then the person would bend over and pick up a starfish and toss it back into the ocean. I asked the person, "Why?" He said, "The tide is going out, if I don't throw them in, they will die." I said, "Since there are so many starfish laying on this huge beach, you can't make a difference." Bending over and picking up another starfish, the person stated, as he threw it into the ocean, "It made a difference to that one."

Hi Jennifer,
I'm so glad you signed up for the Book Swap, partly because you'll get a free book and partly because it led me to your blog! I was very touched by your post about your nephew and also your camp experiences. That is an amazing thing for you to do. I also really like the excerpt you posted today. When we go to the beach after a storm, my girls throw every single hermit crab they find back in the water and they're right: it does make a difference.
