Importance of One

One huge raindrop fell on my windshield today and then another, and within a few minutes I was driving through torrential sheets of heavenly water. All of our thirsty land desperately needed the downpour, but one drop alone may make a difference to a grasshopper. Billions of grains of sand make up a beautiful beach, but what happens if just one grain gets in our eye? Each day gives us 86,400 seconds that we usually take for granted, but how often has a single second changed the direction of our lives? Of all the words that are spoken to us, which few do we remember? In our world of almost seven billion people, whose loss would we most mourn? With what amount does a large bank account start? . . . . . The raindrops started me thinking about accumulation and the power of one.
