I was lousy at sports, although tall for a girl. I just had no skill. I tried out for cheerleading, tried to learn a foreign language, and even tired to learn to play drums. However, just like Jan I didn’t quit, I just keep trying. I discovered a real love of theatre, and I did not realize until just a few years ago, I had a talent for writing and enjoy doing it.
Then earlier this afternoon, while walking down the juice aisle at the local super market, I saw woman struggling to reach the cranberry juice on the top shelf. I reached behind her, grabbed the item and handed it to her. My second talent. Not all talents require an audience. I am tall and I can reach those serving bowls or juice containers on the top shelf. I can grab items that others would require a step stool to reach..
I used my talent in a small way, and for that she was grateful.
