All alone with my thoughts on a saturday night...

....Mini is off to D.C. visiting family and my evening didn't turn out as planned...So, I'm home alone with my thoughts, feeling a little down...having a margarita...watching a movie on t.v....when I had an AHA moment...

A young woman (in the movie I'm watching) told an old man that he had a gift for painting, when the old man replied, "no it's just a talent"...he went on to explain that a talent is something that you do better than most people, but a gift is something you do that changes someone's life...and a gift can only come from God...Do you agree?


  1. Hell yeah I agree..Well said!!!! (sorry for the hell yeah, but its what i felt...have been having thoughts similar lately, and it home)

  2. TALENT is a GIFT from GOD, and if used correctly, it can change someone's life!

  3. Hmm - this has really made me think.
    Some people are born with a talent but some people work really hard to become talented - either of these people could use their talent to change someone's life and they would be equally valid. Does that make sense?
    I think this subject has got me in knots somewhat...!

  4. That is beautiful. Completely agree.

  5. I believe that both come from God. That a talent can be turned into a gift if your heart is open to it. I would like to know the title of this film.

  6. hmmm...your thought and these replies give me something to think about. thanks for sharing.


Live the life you dream about...I dare you.
