It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 11, Page 17, Book 13

In all the universe, in all time, you are the only you. 
Never have molecules come together exactly like you,
never again will your footsteps be repeated upon this earth. 
Your strength is the strength someone can count on, 
your life is the life that can make a difference.

There are times in all of our lives that we’ve wished we were someone else.  Someone else that has or does things that we’d like to have or something we’d like to have done. But when it comes right down to it, I think I’m glad just to be me.  I don’t have a lot but I do enjoy what I do have.  

Each one of is special in our own right and being someone else wouldn’t make us a whole lot different.  If I had the things that some do, I probably wouldn’t know how to act.  I’d be uncomfortable with having  someone else clean my house.  I know people that do have cleaning people come in and I also know some who clean homes for others too.  For me that just isn’t the thing.  I have the time and the will to do it, but others don’t.  

We are all different, that is my point…Not what we do or have.  If we were all alike it would be so boring.

We need to take time just to be thankful for who we are.  We are a gift from God.  A treasure untold.  We are so amazing!  Too often we don’t appreciate the treasures we are.  

My Thankful List - Day 17

1139. for people who think that character is better than popularity
1140.  for having finished the 1st of my Christmas  craft projects
1141. for having a warmer day to get outside and rake leaves

There are times when life isn't all you want, but it's all you have. So what I say is: Have it! Stick a geranium in your hat and be happy!

Individuality is what makes us all special.
