OK, are you ready? Give us your best five minutes on:


::There are all kinds of gifts:  The gift of sight, the gift of speech, dancing, painting, selling, the gift of gab….. well you get the idea.  I am not thinking of a specific gift but generally wrapping it up under one – it is talent and for the life of me since I cannot figure out why one person has a certain talent and another doesn’t then I figure it must be a gift.

I wonder if luck is a gift?  Some people seem to be and others do not.  Although I have heard that if you work hard enough you will be lucky.

There are gifts that come in packages and there are people who regift which I think is a wonderful thing.  No one wants to be stuck with a gift they don’t like but everyone likes ‘the thought’ behind a gift.

The act of giving is also wonderful and yes everyone knows it is better to give than receive but I bet any 5 year old can argue that one pretty good.  I mean there is satisfaction in giving but also in receiving ..only because I know it makes the giver feel so good.  Of course.

I do wonder how I can access some of the other gifts.  The talent ones.  Just imagine….oops times up!
