We all have our assets, you know what I mean? That thing we do, that skill we have, that little something extra God gave us just because. The problem is, we were born with them and after we have them a while, we don’t even notice them anymore.
Take my oldest son. We’re on a cruise this week and the food is, of course, fabulous. However, of the five of us, he’s the only one who can eat anything he wants and not gain an ounce. The rest of us are so jealous as we pick and choose, knowing we’ll pay for any gluttony later.
Kevin and my other two sons turned dark golden brown in the sun. They rarely burn and spend the summer looking like California beach boys. Me and my oldest son? Think lobster red. Think gobs of sunscreen. Think pale white and lots of freckles.
Yep, we all have our assets. Some of us can memorize at the drop of a hat, some of us have a keen sense of direction, and some of us always know just the right thing to say (not me!)
So what’s yours? What little knack, little gift, little asset do you have that you often overlook?
