In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “I Got Skills.”
Managing nicely, amazingly actually with little or no skill in sewing I covered a chair, grew some flowers and planted some trees and they grew how amazing is that . Nurse, cook, doctor , wife , mother sister, friend , daughter , writer, teacher, student, French speaker, English speaker, graduate , philosopher , typist, technician and the list goes on .
If I was to pick a couple of skills that need some work to become skills I excel at they would be learning to speak better French, actually become so fluent that one would mistake me as a native French speaker, know my camera like I know how to walk , and know my garden and see it bloom. Those are the 3 skills I would like to develop as at the moment I am practising many many skills but am master of none .
Have I time to become skilled in speaking French, to learn about and practice gardening and also learn to master my camera , oh I do wish a fairy would appear and wave her magic wand or at least direct me to a timetable that would help me in my skills upmanship if you like.
However if I don’t manage to master these three things I will still enjoy them and potter on , if I can boast of one skill I do have in great abundance it is the skill of making do. always I have been able to make do wonderfully and for this lovely attribute of myself I am so so grateful , many things I have fixed in my own way , many out fits wonderful out fits I have put together on little money and many meals have been prepared fit for a King , no matter how tired I have been ; I dont think I have ever let anyone down in regards to having the home prepared for parties and celebrations my kindness at times is over the top my dear hubbie says but I just love giving and so what if I don’t sometimes think about tomorrow; so you see I do have skills, great people skills I do posses also and I always make everyone feel like they are welcome when they come to visit , I can wreck the house in an hour and have it shining in 2hours . I light up the room at times they say and this is me ok sometimes I falter dont we all but the good times with me make up for all the falls my skills are many but I am master of none.
HAPPY Happy days to all .
