Patience is not the ability to wait
classic social work story: An old man walked across the beach until he came across a young boy throwing something into the breaking waves. Upon closer inspection, the old man could see that the boy was tossing stranded starfish from the sandy beach, back into the ocean. “What are you doing, young man?” He asked. “If the starfish are still on the beach when the sun rises, they will die,” the boy answered. “That is ridiculous. There are thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish. It doesn’t matter how many you throw in; you can’t make a difference.” “It matters to this one,” the boy said as he threw another starfish into the waves. “And it matters to this one.”
An old man walked along the beach and saw a young boy throwing something into the breaking waves. Looking closer, the old man saw he was tossing stranded starfish back into the ocean.“What are you doing?” he asked. “If the starfish are still on the beach at sunrise, they'll die,” the boy answered.“Ridiculous. With thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish, it doesn't matter how many you throw; you can't make a difference." "It matters to this one," the boy said, throwing another in.

"PERHAPS LOVE is like a resting place -- A shelter from the storm -- It exists to give you comfort -- It is there to keep you warm -- And in those times of trouble -- When you are most alone -- The memory of love will bring you home" ... Beautiful and poetic, a song that touches one's heart...sung by JOHN DENVER
What is it about this guy that led me to create this page? First, it was the press coverage of his religious devotion, particularly at game time, when he would stop to thank God for his success. It made his name a household word...and a subject for mokery and ridicule by jealous whackjobs. More to the point, Tebow got me watching NFL games again.
Time to jump on the Tebow train
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” — Steve Jobs
