I don't think I posted this yet

I got this email from a dear friend back in March. I looked through my archives and don't think I have posted it yet. I was reading through my keepers and came across it. Something I would like to share.

15 Things You Probably Never Knew or Thought About
1. At least 5 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. If not for you, someone may not be living.
8. You are special and unique.
9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.
12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it.
13. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
14. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.
15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

A Minute
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them. Take the time... to live and love.

When I first got this email, to be honest I put it into my keepers after reading it; not really giving it a second thought. In my heart I didn't believe it. Didn't believe that people could love me this much and that I mattered this much to someone. Now I believe it. I am getting used to people caring about me and loving me. There was a reason why I kept it and now that I have read it again I am really glad I did. God sends us gentle reminders and for some reason today I happened to read this and get that reminder.

that's awesome Mitch. I finally thought I would share it with the rest of the blog community. I am grateful to the person that sent it to me. From the first time I got it, even though I subconsciously pushed it aside.
