Erma (and me)

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me. –Erma Bombeck
I love Erma's sense of humor but this quote makes a person think about what we were given to use in our life time. So many of us haven't given thought to using up our talents. Do you suppose there is another talent waiting to be used if we went at our full potential? We always say God doesn't give us any more than He knows we can handle. Is there a talent in the learning process or when we feel our shoulder have borne enough.
Am I a teacher?
Am I a caregiver?
Am I a worker of a specific profession?
Am I a support system?
Am I able to show love of family & friends?
Am I able to love myself?
Am I a God fearing, God loving person?
Can we answer yes to these thought provokers? I say yes we can.
Thank you for all your comments & thoughts!
