 YOU  ARE  LOVED -- AND  VALUABLE

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.
 
Then 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."

SeniorArk adds:

Do you feel that love? You are made to be loved.  If you don't feel it, then walk into your church, or senior center, and tell somebody that you are living with the feeling that no one loves you. You might be very surprised at the response. If you are too embarrassed to do that, then email someone or some organization, and tell them how you feel. If all else fails, and you still feel alone, and not loved, then email SeniorArk, at seniorark@aol.com, and we will help. You really ARE loved. Sometimes it just seems far away. Our hurried, fractured world, seems so impersonal at times.

We at www.seniorark.com DO love you. That's why we do this website! Email us.
