I feel a little down on myself lately. You know how that happens from time to time? So at the risk of sounding vain, I’m making a list of good things about ME.
I’m good at baking. I’m not the best baker there ever was, but I can make some good oatmeal bread (amongst the various other good things I bake).
I have a good marriage. A good marriage takes a lot of work and nurturing. I’m good at nurturing—it comes naturally. Work, I have to work at, but I’m still good at it.
I’m good at knowing where and how to find peace. Not all people are peace-seekers, but I am one, and I’m good at it.
I’m good at singing good and loud to good music…when no one is listening.
I’m pretty creative. I know how to make things look good, whether it’s hair, or a mantle or a scrapbook page. I’m good at it, and I’m glad, because that’s one thing I love doing more than just about anything else.
I’ve got a good smile. People tell me that all the time, and it’s a nice compliment, and I’ll accept that today.
I’m surprised at how hard that was! But I did a good job at not mentioning all the exceptions and all the things I’m not good at. That’s going to have to be good enough.
What are you good at? I’m aching to know.
