Please help me solve this mystery............WHO WROTE OR SAID THIS? It is not complete and I would like to get the ending! THANKS!

If you're lying on a beach with

80 billion grains of sand beneath you,

700 thousand ocean waves before you,

and you're still not at all impressed,

I want you to think about this:

The light you see reflecting from the stars is over one million years old.

But, then, just before you start to feel like a mere blip

in the gigantic scheme of things.....................

I found this:

If you're ever lying on a beach with
80 billion* grains of sand beneath you,
700 thousand* ocean waves before you,
60 million* stars stretched out above you,
and you're still not at all impressed,
I want you to think about this:
The light you see reflecting from the stars is over one million* years old.
WOW.
But then, just before you start to feel like a mere blip
in the gigantic scheme of things, please remember this:
Yes, you are small, but you're also irreplaceable
and invaluable
and miraculous.
Those stars don't have anything on you.

Reminds me of Monty Python's "Galaxy Song" from The Meaning of Life.

I had found this, word for word as Phaedrus has already posted (so I won't repeat it), and posted it in reply to a request on another quotation website. I found it in a post on a discussion forum, and neither of the links I provided work now.
The person that posted it was exuberant about it and the book that he found it in:

"I Hope You Dance" written by Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers, foreword written by Lee Ann Womack
http://www.nelsondirect.com/nelsondirec ... 1558538445

They also wrote Womack's smash hit song "I Hope You Dance."

It is attributed to Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers at this Google cached webpage
