I remember a quotation which I have always liked to share with my friends, “If there is only one gift which I can give you, it will be the gift of how others see you … and you will know how special you are to them.” Indeed, each of us is unique and special in our own ways and no two are exactly the same. Each of us can make a difference and help others even if in a small way. Sometimes, even a simple smile goes a long way and it costs us nothing to smile.
Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other – it doesn’t matter who it is – and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other. – Mother Teresa
One and Only You by James T. Moore
Every single blade of grass,
And every flake of snow,
Is just a wee bit different.
There’s no two alike, you know.
From something small, like grains of sand,
To each gigantic star
All were made with THIS in mind:
To be just what they are!
How foolish then, to imitate;
How useless to pretend!
Since each of us comes from a MIND
Whose ideas never end.
There’ll only be just ONE of ME
To show what I can do.
And you should likewise feel very proud,
There’s only ONE of YOU.
That is where it all starts
With you, a wonderful
unlimited human being.
