Here it is:
You know, sometimes in this life we can feel out of place, an outsider, weird, different. In a small town, there are times I feel this very intensely.
We may not do, look, act or speak like other people. We may not live our lives the way they do, or believe as they do. What is easy for them may be hard for us, and vice versa. I think maybe that's okay, even if it's hard to see it sometimes. I firmly believe God made us all to be who we are, to bring something unique to the world for a purpose.
But the world doesn't always believe the same and so we can get beaten down if we aren't careful and vigilant. Or, worse yet, our kids can get beaten down. I wish the world wasn't this way, but I have seen it happen too many times to be in denial.
I heard someone say once that "God doesn't make mistakes." I believe it. He made me to be something special (and you too, of course). He gave me something precious to offer the world and gave my Brady something precious too.
Though we may struggle sometimes for our differences, we should not measure our worth by them. We are who we were meant to be. We are good enough for that reason alone.
We can only do our best, be our best, pray and strive to do better tomorrow. If we do that, no one can fault us. And Snoopy's right. They cannot tell us we're doing it wrong.
