Cross #13.2591

Mobile, AL

I was so excited to attend the AACC world conference in Nashville this Sept. 2013. While in the exhibit hall I saw the crosses on a table and keep going to the same one. I love the beach and it reminded me of the beach. What I loved the most was the starfish in the center. For the last 9 yrs. I have been involved in the crisis pregnancy work. We heard a story about a little boy on the beach throwing starfish back to safety in the water, when somone trying to discourage him said “why bother!” “There are too many and you can’t save them all!” The little boy picking up another starfish and throwing it in said, “I saved that one.” The story so encouraged us, and we adopted the starfish as a symbol how valuable each one are.
