Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.

Pretty Purple Flowers

Each day a new Beginning

I do not want to die . . . until I have faithfully made the most of
my talent and cultivated the seed that was placed in me until the
last small twig has grown.  —Kathe Kollwitz—
There’s so much to do before we rest . . . so much to do. We each are gifted with talents, similar in some respects to others’ talents, but unique in how we’ll be able to use them. Do we realize our talents?
We need only to dare to dream, and there they’ll be. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of self-pity, thinking we have no
purpose, fearing we’ll take life nowhere, dreading others’ expectations of us. But we can turn our thinking around

at any moment. The choice is ours. We can simply decide to discover our talents, and nurture them
and enrich the lives of others. The benefits will be many. So will the joys.
We have a very important part to play, today, in the lives we touch. We
can expect adventure, and we’ll find it. We can look for our purpose;
it’s at hand. We can remember, we aren’t alone. We are in partnership
every moment. Our talents are God-given, and guidance for their full
use is part of the gift.
I will have a dream today. In my dream is my direction.
