I HOPE NOONE MINDS BUT THERE ARE SOME DAYS I BARELY GET THRU AND THIS REALLY LIFTED ME UP--A WELL KNOWN SPEAKER STARTED OFF HIS SEMINAR BY HOLDING UP A $20 DOLLAR BILL, IN THE ROOM OF 200 HE ASKED WHO WOULD LIKE THIS $20 DOLLAR BILL? HANDS STARTED GOING UP. HE SAID - I AM GOING TO GIVE THIS $20 DOLLAR BILL TO ONE OF YOU BUT FIRST LET ME DO THIS. HE PROCEEDED TO CRUMPLE THE$20 DOLLAR BILLUP. HE THEN ASKED , WHO STILL WANTS IT? STILL HANDS WENT UP IN THE AIR. WELL, HE REPLIED, WHAT IF I DO THIS? AND HE DROPPED IT TO 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, YOU HAVE ALL LEARNED A VALUABLE LESSON. NO MATTER WHAT I DID TO THE MONEY, YOU STILL WANTED IT BECAUSE IT DID NOT DECREASE THE VALUE. IT WAS STILL WORTH $20 DOLLARS. 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 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. PLEASE PASS THIS ON IF YOU WISH IT MAY HELP A HURTING HEART, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS NOT YOUR PROBLEMS.. SORRY IF THERE ARE ANY TYPOS OR WORDS RUNNING TOGETHER I AM NOT A TYPIST AT ALL AND MY SPACE BAR IS STICKING
