    This has been around, but is a good reminder since we all get down at times due to our DDs:

    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?"

    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, and asked,

    "NOW who still wants it?"

    Still the hands stayed in the air. The speaker said,

    "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 and WHOSE WE ARE.

    "You are special- Don't EVER forget it."

    If you do not pass this on, you may never know the lives it touches, the hurting hearts it speaks to, or the hope that it can bring.

    Count your blessings, not your problems, and give special thanks at Thanksgiving!
