"If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room." ~Anita Roddick, human rights activist
Who, me? Make a difference? I don't think so.
But then I think of the time my husband and I vacationed on the coast of Turkey. A nice hotel on the Mediterranean. A lovely time away from our kiddos--until we turned out the lights and found out we weren't the only ones in our room. My husband spent most of the night doing "The Dance of the Mosquitos." You know it: Jump. Slap. Jump. Slap. Not a whole lot of sleeping--or anything else--going on that night.
Those pesky mosquitoes were a whole lot smaller than me and my husband. But guess who ruled the night?
What about you? Afraid you're not influential? Think again, my friend. Think again.
