I'm a bit late with this, since Remember Me Thursday was yesterday, September 24. But, I think the mission of this movement is one that's very important all year round. So, I'd like to take a moment to talk about exactly what that goal is and share my own adoption stories.
Be one of the reasons that an employee smiles today, and any other day you happen to be around workers. Make sure they know they're truly appreciated, that they're more than just their job. And remember, whether you're a crafter, artist, author, teacher, clerk, waiter/waitress, banker, or something else, you are seen and appreciated. Thank you for all the work you do.
You may feel like all your hard work doesn't count towards anything. You may think your hobbies are unproductive and a waste of time. But, your hobbies are completely valid as long as you enjoy them. Something doesn't have to be productive to be worthwhile. And although it may not always feel like it, your work is appreciated. Somewhere in the world, there are people who care about what you do and the effort you put into it. Just remember, the things you do, the hobbies you enjoy, and the work you create, it all matters.
As long as we keep the flame of hope lit, it will continue shining and illuminating the path forward. We are the ones who keep hope alive, so if we continue to believe in it, hope will exist. Always remember, there is still hope.
You being here does make a difference, and it makes a positive difference. You enrich and better the lives of your loved ones, along with people you may not even know. Always remember, you have a purpose, and it's a wonderful one.
