We ALL need someone to believe in us. We ALL need someone to be God's arm on our shoulder letting us know we can and God's hands applauding us after we did. Here's a lil diddy I wrote awhile back just for...YOU!

Today YOU will make a difference in the world by being YOU.
God says He knew YOU before YOU were born.
He has a plan for YOUR life.
If YOU were to die today, nobody else could be YOU.
there are no more YOU's.
YOU are not a clone, YOU are not a mistake, YOU are not another,
YOU never have been, YOU never will be.
YOU have to be YOU to make YOUR difference in this world.
Don't hope someone else will; don't think someone else can.
So roll YOUR shoulders back & lift YOUR head up.
Before YOU walk away from YOUR computer to be YOU for today,
ask God to give YOU the confidence to do it.
And then go out there & make YOUR difference...
YOU'RE the only one who can.

Beautiful! The sad part is there's so many out there that don't like "me" cause they keep trying to change me n I don't let them!! I have many at this moment not talking to me n trying to make me feel guilty of being "me". But I'll read your poem everyday to remind me that God loves ME! ;)

Thanks Heather for the beautiful reminder that we are as unique and diverse as God's unlimited ability to create us that way. Good stuff!
