A few years ago, my husband and I were on an island for a weekend with our 3- and 4-year-old daughters. As we went back and thought about what to do next, our girls jumped in and told us exactly what they wanted to do. “We want to go to the butterfly museum, ” said Ariela and Eliana.

As soon as we walked into the main area of the museum, we saw thousands of beautiful butterflies, all flapping (拍打) their colourful wings.

My girls were jumping up and down and I knew we had made the right decision to come to the museum. They were having so much fun. I turned to our museum tour guide because I was curious and asked, “How long do butterflies live? ” She said, “About ten days. ” “What can butterflies do in ten days? ” I asked. The guide stopped, looked at me and said, “They make the world a more beautiful place. ” “Wow, ” I said, “I never thought about butterflies like that. Thank you. ”

After we said goodbye, I couldn’t stop thinking about what the guide had said. She was right. We all have something to offer the world with the time we have. When we focus our gifts on taking care of each other every day, we can make a difference.

Appreciate(感激) the influence you can have on your family, friends, co-workers and neighbours. Like a butterfly, you have your own way of making the world a little better for everyone.
