Talents let us be a blessing

(Continued)

MOORE —

The next day she brought the bags back to work and placed them on the desks of the men who gave them to her.

“Hilda, what are you doing?” A coworker asked.

“Just being a blessing,” she responded.

 “What do you mean?” the coworker inquired.

“Well, Albert and Jim are single and they don’t know how to sew on a button when it falls off. My mother taught me how to sew on a button when I was five years old. She told me someday I’d sew on buttons for strangers and make them happy. Well, she was right. It gives me pleasure to do this small thing for two bachelors whose families live far away and they don’t even own a spool of thread.”

I wonder how many people around you share their secret talents with others? What secret (or maybe not so secret) talents do we have that we could share with others?

  There’s an old song that says it all: “Make Me A Blessing to Someone Today.”  Dear Lord, let this be our prayer.
