From a Grain of Sand
|Keshet Productions, 2009
Doris was that little girl whom everyone overlooked, for she was shy, plain, and withdrawn. While the world about her was overlooking her, she was absorbing all about her.
As she grew, so grew her experiences with life; much of which fell far short of her standards and anticipation. It was those shortcomings that most influenced her life.
She lost her soul mate very early in life and fell back on a teaching career in an attempt to create a generation that her own teachers had failed to build — and to fulfill the life that she knew her soul mate would have created.
Many would have said that she led a sad and fruitless life: those who came to know her and to have the good fortune to have her as their teacher, realized that she was truly an Angel in drab disguise.
This is the story of how one person can have a huge impact on the lives of others.
She was the teacher few had, but all wished for.
“Daddy, I am the product of our family: I want to be a ‘doer’ and I want to be a ‘giver’.”
“But can you understand that I want to help more than just that? I am not explaining myself very well…”
“I want to make as many people’s future better as I am able… I know that sounds idealistic, and not even a little realistic… but there it is!”
James looked at his daughter in a new light. She was no longer the little first that he had always seen across the table — now he saw a grown woman! Not grown in years, but in maturity. A very mature young woman! He was so proud of her!
