The Gift of You
Share this post with anyone who is a gift to you, keep the kindness going!
Before you were born, God chose your mother and your father. Your father had all the components- maybe it was his dimpled grin or his nose. Your mother had all the elements- maybe it was her fiery passion or her elegant hands.
Whatever they possessed; it was all the ingredients God knew was needed to create the Gift of You.
Chemistry beyond their control drew your parents to each other. Even if it was for one night or one lifetime, it was just enough to design the Gift of You.
Of the millions of sperm cells your father released, only one was worthy enough to call you into existence. Chemically your mother’s egg produced a hormone to shut down the advances of all the other cells to only allow one in. That one chosen egg and that one sperm cell collided purposely and you began.
In the darkness of your mother’s womb, you grew. You lived through the threat of miscarriage, falls, and every other danger. You could have exited your mother with your umbilical cord tried around your neck- ceasing your life. You could have entered this world with your eyes closed and breath still, but that was not the case.
You entered earth alive, with a heartbeat, and lungs, and the world was blessed with the Gift of You.
Though life has been difficult in many ways, you have blessed us with your presence, because you are necessary. The world needs you.
It is not by accident that you were born, it is not by chance you appeared in this era. You are neither too young or too old to be here with us today. You are perfect!
Your experiences were never too hard; your story was uniquely fashioned to add to this world. You have always been wanted and always been loved. If you would have not been crucial to this present moment, you would have died a long time ago. Yet, you are here. Here today, with purpose and meaning.
Your presence signifies that no one is like you. No one can do for a room what you can do for it. Your jokes are a little off-beat, but we need to hear them. No one has your particular set of teeth when they smile. No one has your sense of style or taste. No one has your history or your future.
The way you walk brings delight to someone in a way that any other steps would not. Your hair and your eyes give us something to look at in a different manner than anyone else’s. Your presence has a certain note to it which adds to humanity’s song. You have lived through all manner of dangers, fevers, heartaches, and broken bones because you are a needed gift.
Your very fingerprint is unique and there is none other like it. Your face is yours alone and it brings pleasure and gladness to many. Many can try to imitate, but none can truly be you.
Your gifts were given to you exclusively for a reason. God knew, in all his wisdom, that you alone would make the correct choices with such a life as yours. You are your own brand of spice who adds flavor to the lives of so very many.
Your body has been a beautiful vessel that has carried you on a journey that was predestined. Your presence has helped numerous souls. Many have benefited from your kindness, your stories, your smile, and your love. Little did you know, you saved lives unaware.
The Gift of You is a culmination of all your stories, all your genes, all your experiences, and all your ancestors. History has been waiting on you for such a time as this. Every breathe you take changes history in some way or another. Your footprints will make an impact on the shores of time in a way that no other person could.
