    He gave me a million gifts so it’s difficult to pick one! Part of why I started a blog cuz I’m trying to find loud outlets to help other people God gave the Gift of Depression… It took me 20 years to find that it is a Gift and not a Curse! Hope that I can help even just one person discover that sooner to avoid suffering and be able to embrace all the amazing beauty that comes with it!

  2. Hi Rae!

    I think one gift I may have is to learn well from my mistakes and pass this knowledge on.

    Confucius said about learning –

    By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

    I’ve learned so much from my mistakes that it’s helped me to notice when other people were doing the same. While I was working as a Test Technician, I enjoyed training new staff on how to use scientific instruments, but this is only one example. It’s the ability to analyse your mistakes that helps you to pass on what you’ve learned in a meaningful way and I thank God for it.

    Peace and love to all,

  3. Thank you Rae!

    If I am wise, it’s a gift from God, and it is limited by my humanity, while God’s wisdom is infinite.

    You may like another quote from China, although I’ve forgotten who said it –

    There’s no shame in not knowing; the shame is in not bothering to find out.

    Peace and love to all,

  4. …..and the inevitable truth is that those (born again Christians) who use God’s gifts well will be given eternal rewards. It’s absolutely correct to give it back to Jesus. Amen!

  6. Dr. Leo Buscaglia understood the power of love. He used his family life to share the values of love, forgiveness, and acceptance. I imagine his PBS presentations can be found on YouTube. He was a gentle soul and good man. Thanks for sharing his quote. Ray

  7. I absolutely love it. I never thought of it that way. I pray that my Gift can be used to open doors of conversation. I enjoy my Gift and I encourage others especially when I can teach them or help them.

  8. In the vein of “everything happens for a reason,” I saw the following on Facebook a few hours ago, so I thought I’d share:
    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.
    – Leo Buscaglia PhD (1924-1998), an American author, motivational speaker and professor at USC, who who was moved by a student’s suicide to offer a non-credit course that contemplated human disconnectedness and the meaning of life called “Love 1A.” He became well-known by a generation who enjoyed his emotional talks, which served as critical fundraisers for Public Broadcasting (PBS) and his five NYT Best Sellers (at one point all making the list simultaneously.
