Ann seems to remember everything, at least in my view. She can remember things she did and events going back to kindergarten which, by the way, was well over 45 years ago. I, on the other hand, often jokingly say that I can barely remember what I did last week, let alone something going back that far. So, when she asks if I remember an event, I usually respond with raised eyebrows and a blank look. In other words, “You are, of course, kidding.”
And she is not the only one I know who has that “memory of an elephant.” It used to bother me, but no longer, as I have come to the realization that it is a gift that they were given. I have been given other gifts, abilities that I can draw on.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter what we do or do not remember as God does that for us. What matters is how we do what we do. In other words, how we live each and every moment.
What are your abilities and gifts? Do you consider your abilities as gifts to give others?
May I use the gifts that you have given me in the ways in which they were intended. Amen. — DR
