    Someone just sent me this in an e-mail and I thought I'd share it with you all.

    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."

    Hugs to all,
    Twerp

    That's a really awesome message. I'm going to send it on to a couple of VERY worthwhile people in my life who have both been feeling quite worthless lately. I hope it makes them smile like YOU made me smile!

    Blessings to you!

    as much as I did. It gives us a certain perspective, I think, especially those of us who feel that we just aren't what we used to be...
