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.

And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his

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."
Count your blessings not your problems.
