I am surrounded with friends and family who do not share the same passion of green and organic living as me. I tell you, it can be very difficult to be able to live your way as others are either trying to question your thinking or justifying their actions.
Often the question get raised, what can a single person do? Or what difference it will make?
It’s not an easy conversation especially when people have preconceived minds.
I feel so blessed that I am raising the kids who share my passion towards the happier and healthier world. Few days back my daughter got a lovely gift for me and she told me” mommy thanks for making us the throwers of starfish”. I wondered what it meant.
When I opened the gift, it was a beautiful story titled ‘Starfish’.
I got so touched with the story. It’s a beautiful read so I thought of sharing with you all.
A man saw a boy throwing starfish into the ocean, he asked the boy why he was doing this and the boy said, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”
The boy picked up another starfish and threw it in. He smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one.”
This month’s art project is also inspired by this story.
For this project what you will need
• Paints or markers
Draw starfish on cardstock. Cut using scissors. Dip paintbrush in paints and dab it gently on the paper for polka dot impressions. Write the story or print for the base. When dry, stick starfishes using glue to the base.
Be colorful, joyful and the change you wish to see in the world!
