Maybe it's because I was teased so much when I was younger. Maybe it's because I remember what it is like to feel (to sometimes still want to feel) invisible. My parents called me "Captain of the Underdogs" but I just wanted to stop people from feeling as lonely as I did most of the time. It made me so happy to make other people feel special. It still does. I have changed in a lot of ways and I have had people who have wanted to change me in every way but I am relieved to see that somethings haven't changed at all. I still openly share my faith where ever I am and with anyone who takes time, to spend time, with me. I still mean it when I say I will be there if you need me. I still mean it when I say I love you. As jaded as I have become (and some days it feels like my heart has gone rock hard) I am still the girl you can call because I really do care. The people that God has allowed through my life have brought me joy, singing, heartache, hurt and healing. I wouldn't trade even one of you. Not one.
