Some stories can change lives.
Maybe this can too!
One morning, after a heavy rainfall, a young girl walked down the road to catch her school bus.
As she approached the bus stop, she saw an old man picking things up off the sidewalk and throwing them into the woods. As she got closer, and the morning sun shed its light, she noticed that the old man was picking up worms which wiggled out of the ground the night before. There were thousands of them.
The girl watched as the old man picked them up, one by one, and tossed them back into the woods.
She approached the old man and introduced herself. “Excuse me, but there are thousands of worms stranded on the road, you can’t possibly make a difference.”
The old man smiled and looked at her, then picked up another worm. He tossed it into the woods. “I certainly made a difference to that one, didn’t I?”
The old man did make a difference. Every day we can make a difference in the world around us. How can you affect the world around you today?Leave a reply →
