    Wanted to share this with you all! My daughter e-mailed it to me today!

    20$

    A well known speaker Held up a 20$ bill to a room of 200 people and ask "Who would like this 20$ bill?" Hands started to shoot up!

    He said "i'm going to give it to one of you today, but first let me do this and he took the 20 and crumpled it up in his hands! and then ask again "Who still wants it?" and hands still shot up in the air!

    well he said what if i do this and he dropped it to the ground and ground it into the dirt with his shoe! and then he picked it up and ask "Who still wants the 20?"

    It was all crumpled and dirty but still hands shot up in the crowd ! He replied "My friends you have just learned a valuable lesson"

    No matter what i did to the money it didn't lose it's worth!
    " Many times in our lives we are dropped or crumpled and ground into the dirt by circumstances that are out of our control!! and we feel worthless"!

    "But no matter what has happened or what will happenyou will never lose your value!"

    "Dirty or cleaned crumpled or finely pressed you are still pricless to those who do love you"
    "The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know but by who we are and whose we are!"
    "You are very special! and don't forget it!"

    "Remember Amateures built the ark and professionals built the Titanic!" bump

    Permission to share the dollar bill example when need arises? It's one of the most inspirational and powerful messages I've ever heard.

    This is great. Thanks.

    So you have a daughter named Kym? My step daughters name is Kymm. Short for Kymmberly. You don't see very many that spell it with a y. I bet she gets a lot of people spelling it with an i. I know our daughter does.
