Dare to be "Remarkable"!

I am sure most of you have heard the remarkable Susan Boyle story. Her incredible popularity worldwide has touched people everywhere. She has touched them in the most tender of places, in their hearts. I like many shed a few tears. I was moved not only by the beauty of her voice, I was moved by the beauty of her spirit. I think there are many of us who feel that we have not sung our "song" or danced our "dance".
It is so obvious watching Susan, that she has spent years doing what was in her heart, her singing. The remarkable part was when she took that step forward, being willing to put it all out there, her heart, her spirit, her reputation and her song.
Today is Friday and for those who have read this post. I hope you will ponder this weekend about the things that are remarkable about you. For myself I am searching within the chambers of my heart, allowing myself to believe that there is something remarkable about me too. We need more Susan Boyles. We need reminded often that, while we are seemingly ordinary people, we have the spirit in each of us to be remarkable.
