Crumpled $20 Bill...

This goes out to my friend...whose value is immeasurable...she just needs to realize it...

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by
holding up a $20 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 the dollar bill up. He then asked,
"Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.

"Well," he continued, "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 this $20?" Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you 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 love you." The worth of our lives comes
not in what we do, who we know, but by WHO WE ARE.
