The message in this story is that all of us have roles to play in this life -- roles that makes a difference in the lives of others. Don't for one moment think that the cards that have been dealt out in your life are common or unremarkable. You have a gift, an ability, a presence that is waiting to be unwrapped and shared. A ripple in a pond extends a long way, and in directions and with implications you might not have thought of. Be the messenger!
