On Friday night, I had the pleasure of seeing the radio show version of the play, "It's a Wonderful Life." This production is commonly shown around Christmas time in various forms. Toward the end, the main character, George Bailey, considers ending his life because he thinks he doesn't matter, and then his angel shows him what life would be like if he had not been born. This has a quite dramatic effect on George.
Hmmm, what if you or I hadn't been born? There are lots of folks whose lives would have been enormously affected, like parents and siblings. And, our children, as we know them, wouldn't be here. Then there are those whom we have encountered in seemingly small or minimal ways, wherein we likely have no idea the impact we've had upon them.
Your life DOES matter. It matters in a huge way. Everything as we know it would be different if we weren't here. I consider this cause for great celebration of my life and yours!
Thank you for being you!
