I saw a really bad movie the other day called, "The Matador." It was really awful, but there was a great monologue in it that really moved me because I think a lot of us have a person in our lives that comes along at the perfect time when we least expected it and believed in us, even when we didn't believe in ourselves.
Here's the quote:
"When I was first in high school, I told you they made fun of me? They called me 'Hippo Hips' and 'Plate of Beans', the works. And even though I did basketball and chorus, and I had a few friends and acted strong... I never was. -Because I believed them always, every last cruel word. And I always thought I would believe them.
Until I met you.
You arrived and you told me that I was pretty. You told me I was sexy and for the first time, I believed it..."
Thank God for people like this in our lives, that love us and see greatness in us, before we can even recognize it in ourselves.
