My grandmother taught me to embroider and I love having that small part of her. I think of her whenever I get a chance to stitch a delicate pattern. In Girl Scouts I was able to get my embroidery badge so fast that I helped other girls to learn and all thanks to Grandma.
My great-aunt and great-grandmother told me how it was important to learn to roll a round pie crust so that I could get a good husband. They showed me how to roll the crust and make it just so.
My mother taught me to play piano and I in turn showed my children. My son Erik is quite talented and makes up many of his own songs.
There are other things people have taught me, but the reason I brought this up was to encourage you in those things you've been taught.
Maybe you're a really talented cook - pay it forward - teach someone else.
Good at teaching the Bible - start a study - pay it forward and teach another to teach and study the Word of God.
Can you repair cars? Paint glorious paintings? Groom or train dogs? Garden? You can benefit someone else by paying it forward and donating your time to share what you know.
There are so many things that have been lost over the years because no one cared to pay it forward. Today I encourage you to think about the things you can do and share your talents with someone else. In fact, tell us about your talents here. I'd love to know what you're really good at.
God Bless You!
