Q: What are your talents? How can you use them today to bless your family and the world around you?
I wonder this often. What am I good at? As I yell at my children because of this or that, what am I good at? It must not be this. I don't feel like I am raising compassionate children, as I am not doing well with compassion myself.
I want to be one of those people you call when you need help, but I'm not. I struggle with offering my help to others. But I want to. I want my kids to see me doing things, without being asked, for others, for them, for myself. Compassion is NOT one of my talents, but I want it to be. I want my kids to be compassionate. I want them to think of others and how they can help, instead of thinking of themselves first.
And I know the best way to teach them this is by doing it myself.
