Thought for the day

I normally don't paste forwards but this one was good...

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.'

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.

Thank you Heather,
I really needed to see this today.
With all the hours I have been putting in at work, and the lack of time that I have been able to spend at home with my husband, and keeping up with the house work, I have been feeling a little useless lately, let alone like much of a wife.
Thanks again, because just reading it made me put things in a better perspective.
