Tonight's bedtime story was about a cow who had a dream to sing and dance. It was a book that Oma sent the kids for Christmas. Gloria was larger than the other cows and liked to stand out from the crowd. She knew she was different from the cows in her neighborhood and valued that uniqueness in that she did not want to succumb to the the life of an ordinary dairy cow. So, she performed for her peers but was laughed off stage. She eventually moved away and found a group of Hippos (much larger than her) who valued her talents and spoke greatly of her.

The story is a great lesson for children and adults trying to find their place in society. You might not have an engaging audience on any social media, but you will eventually find those that value all that you have to offer.

Never give up. Keep looking.
