    $20.00


    Sometimes we just need to be reminded!

    A well-known speaker started off his seminar by
    holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked,
    "Who would like this $20 bill?"
    Hands started going up.
    He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you
    but first, let me do this.
    He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.
    He then asked, "Who still wants it?"
    Still the hands were up in the air.
    Well, he replied, "What if I do this?"
    And he dropped it on the ground
    and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
    He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
    "Now, who still wants it?"
    Still the hands went into the air.
    My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.
    No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it
    because it did not decrease in value.
    It was still worth $20.
    Many times in our lives,
    we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt
    by the decisions we make and
    the circumstances that come our way.
    We feel as though we are worthless.
    But no matter what has happened or
    what will happen, you will never lose your value.
    Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased,
    you are still priceless 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.
    You are special - Don't EVER forget it."

    What a wonderful story. I'm sure we all feel a little a little crumpled at times. I know I sure do!
