We all have our own gifts, talents, and abilities.  Unfortunately sometimes we don't see our own gifts, but instead envy everyone else's.  I have always had that problem.  I can see everyone else's gifts.  If they don't see their own, I can tell them what it is, why it is needed and how wonderful and special they are for having this to offer to the world.  I on the other hand sometimes don't see my own gifts.  I feel very ordinary and not special at all.  Not in an "I feel sorry for myself" kind of way.  I actually like myself and think I'm pretty okay.  I just don't think there is anything particularly special about what I do.  I have friends that do crafts, knit, crochet, draw, paint.  I have friends who are very athletic or super intelligent.  I have friends who are gifted healers, intuitives or mediums.  You get the idea...amazing, talented people.  I'm just average me.

Then I go on my blog site and see that people all over the world are reading my blogs...people from some places that I have never even heard of.  It blows me away.  I am grateful for all of you and truly humbled by your support.

I am writing this as a reminder to everyone that we ALL have our own special gifts.  Even if you don't consider what you do a big deal or anything very important, it could mean a lot to someone else.  I read, "Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do".  Let's all try to focus on what we CAN do and then go out and DO IT!!!

Love,  Paula

While I was looking at the last full moon, I had a "Fievel" moment.  For those of you that don't know what that means, Fievel is a character in the 1986 animated film "An American Tail".  It's about a sweet little family of mice that are immigrating from Russia to the US by boat because they lost their home.  There was a storm  and Fievel got swept away and separated from his family.  He made it to the US in a bottle and with some help. set out to look for his family.  One night while looking at the moon and stars, he sings the song "Somewhere Out There" while one of his family members was looking at the same moon and stars and singing the same song.  That connected them.

While I was looking at the full moon, stars and planets that evening, I felt that same kind of connection.  I have a son and daughter-in-law that live in California and thought, "They'll be looking at that same moon and stars in a few hours."  I have family that live in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.  I have friends that live all over the world.  Even though we'll be looking at the moon and stars at different times, it will still be the SAME moon and stars.  My heart just swelled with love at that moment.  I felt so connected to all of them AND to all of you that read my blogs.  I often talk about how we're all connected and how we're all one...that night I truly felt it.

My hope is that the next time you look at the night sky, you'll remember this blog, feel the connection to all of humanity and know that you're never alone and always loved.

Love,  Paula
