What is one talent that you brings you joy?
and
What is one talent that you would like to have?


The talent I have:

I am a really good cook/baker, and I use that talent often to cook for families who just had a baby, an illness, or a death in the family. I also love to cook for my large family of brothers/sisters when we all get together.


The talent that I would like to have:

I would like have the gift of music. Playing an instrument and singing in tune with others must be so rewarding and fun.


What about you?

One talent I have: I am artistic
Talent I wish I had: Quilting; I have zero patience with sewing and am all thumbs. A few relatives and friends make the most exquisite quilts!

Well, my answer falls into both categories.

I can sew and it brings me great joy. It is something I have wanted to do for so long. My retirement / everything for a while gift from my hubby was a new sewing room. It is out of this world!
I want to learn new things in sewing such as smocking.

I am bilingual and bi-literate in English (first language) and Spanish (first learned and then continually developed since the age of eight). It has given me great joy to be able to communicate easily with people from different countries and cultures. I especially enjoy listening to and appreciating music/songs in Spanish.

I have always thought it would be wonderful to play the violin in an orchestra, but, alas! I have very little musical talent. I can't sing, either. However, I am a good listener.

I am multi-lingual/literate and have a real talent for languages. English is my fourth language. I got this talent from my dad's side of the family where everyone knew 8 or more languages. My dad was fluent in 10!

I would love to have the talent of public speaking as well as public debate. It still terrifies me to this day to be in front of an audience even though I can now fake it.

I wish I had a really cool talent but I don't. I have been told by many people: DH, friends, past principals--that I have a talent for getting along with people and making them feel good.

I would really like to be able to learn languages. Also to be able to sing without dogs howling.

I'm like Kate 26 and don't feel I have any special talents. My mother forced me into ballet lessons, piano lessons, art lessons, voice lessons, girl scouts, 4-H, Spanish lessons and nothing ever panned out! I couldn't sew and I can't knit. I actually received a C in home ec in Jr. High because my apron was so pathetic. I can write a good letter. My parents, relatives, in laws always gave me positive reinforcement for my newsy, interesting letters. I wish I could SING with a lovely, melodic voice perfectly on key. (I sound like a screeching feline, but I LOVE to sing in the car by myself!!)

I have a talent for using foreign languages. I have learned Spanish, French, and German with ease.

I would love to be able to sing. I think I have a good voice, but I never developed it, and I love singing.

I have a great ear and appreciation for music. I love to play the piano and sing . I am a soloist at church.
I like embroidery but wish I could enjoy sewing more. Just thinking about using my sewing machine makes me tense. Bad memories from long ago Home Ec classes?
