Beautiful Flowers

Beautiful Flowers

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day.  Flowers and chocolates and greeting cards abound.  Have you ever heard someone say, “What an ugly bunch of flowers?”  It’s a ridiculous statement, have you ever seen an ungly bunch of flowers?  I know I haven’t.  If every bunch of flowers is a beautiful bunch of flowers, doesn’t that acutally mean that none of them are beautiful because none of them are ugly in comparison?  What a stupid question!  Of course they are all beautiful, there is no need for ugly flowers so other flowers can be beautiful.

It may seem like a stupid question and yet, I hear it all the time in a different context:  “If everyone is special, then no one is special.”  I’m fairly sure that you have heard this statement as well, you may even agree with it.  Why is it that we can know and trust that all flowers are truly beautiful and that this means something wonderful but we fail to know and trust this same thing about ourselves and every single other person?

YOU.  ARE.  SPECIAL.  And that means something wonderful!
