There is No One Alive Who is You-er than You! - A Great Reminder from Dr. Seuss

A wonderful reminder from one of my all time favorite author, theologian, philosopher, wise-men - Dr. Seuss.

If you’d never been born, well then what would you be?
You might be a fish! Or a toad in a tree!…
Or worse than that…Why, you might be a wasn’t.
A wasn’t has no fun at all.  No, he doesn’t.
A wasn’t just isn’t.  He just isn’t present.
But you…You ARE YOU!  And, now isn’t that pleasant!…
Today you are you!  That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Shout loud, “I am lucky to be what I am!”
Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham
Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!…
I am what I am!  That’s the great thing to be![i]

[i] Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You! 1959
