You really matter. You really do.

There’s no such thing as a special person, except we all are. There’s nothing that wouldn’t have happened except for so-and-so. When God decided to share love with the world through a child, if the Christ hadn’t been Jesus, it would have been someone else.

I guess most of us wish we weren’t stuck in our spot. Somewhere else, somebody else is who we’d like to be. We can find pictures of them, and listen to them talking on important subjects, and we just know that’s who we’d be, if we could. And we imagine what we’d do.

That’s what we’re offered, growing up. If we beat all the odds, we can be like somebody else. If we can’t, at least we know who they are. We can watch them and love them, and believe they’re really us, inside.

It doesn’t have to be this way.
