Thanks, Judith, for a lovely walk this morning. As we were walking today I thought of the beautiful variety of skills and talents we each have. Often I think we take our talents and skills for granted. They are EASY for us! Indeed, they are easy BECAUSE they are our talents.

“The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world.
There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor.
But that does not lessen our possible impact,
for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along;
people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents.
Someone who will live a happier life merely because
we took the time to share what we had to give.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment,
or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around.
It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are
to make our love felt.”

Thank you, Annette Martin and Gloria Keener, my dear neighbors for your kindness today. Your efforts in helping me move stacks of magazines out of my office will allow me to place new books where they belong. It may not seem much to you, but to me, it is a GREAT help. Thank you, both, for your acts of caring.
