I have been sitting her trying to think of something interesting to write. For the life of me I can't think of anything that I THINK you would want to read.
I feel as if I run all day long and the days are too short. I used to try to think of things during the day to write about that would be entertaining in some way. I have come to the conclusion that I am not a writer. It is one of the things that I wish I could answer differently.
I also want to say "YES" to being a singer...a pianist...an actress...the list goes on.
I do though, encircle myself with FRIENDS that possess these qualities and I live vicariously through them.
For instance, Kirsten sings so beautifully that it has made me cry. Actually real tears of joy and pride for her gift. She also acts and I have enjoyed many a play in the audience, if not helping with makeup just to be in the mix of it.
Leisel plays the piano gracefully and makes it look so simple. She has shared this gift with me at mission farewells and returns for instance. She also scrap books with a talent that makes me BELIEVE if even for that moment that I could do it.
Stacey is an entertaining writer and I long for her to write a book with her musings. I would be the first one in line to buy it and would devour each page with shear delight.
MomE can cut hair. Not like I do, real hair styles that I like. She can sing, play the piano and scrapbook. And...she loves my children. She is their Grandmother, but she truly loves them and they KNOW it.
I could go on and on with this list of those that have talents and I don't. Then I realized that my talent is that I discern that of others and bask in their light. That is enough for me. I have my gifts. They are not as discernible to the naked eye, but they are there and I am grateful to have them.
I give thanks to a loving Heavenly Father that gave me what I have and the knowledge to see them for what they are. Friends and their talents, as well as my own.
