Something I'd like to share. Got it from a friend.

 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 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 remember: amateurs
built the ark .. professionals built the Titanic. If God brings you to it - He will
bring you through it.
