The Blackboard of Life

When I was born, I came dressed in a body. You did, too. Even though we started out the same way, and even though some people say that all babies look alike, each of us is really different. Different, and special in lots of ways. Some that you can see, and some that you can't. 

So here's what I learned about that. I learned that this special, unique body is just one part of me, and that's true for you, too. I learned that what's inside is at least as important as what's outside, because that's where I do my dreaming and thinking and telling silly jokes and all kinds of other things that make me the me that I am.
