Everyone has some things that they do better than normal. Some are athletic and can do physical things that normal people can not. Some are more intelligent, some are more beautiful, some can understand and solve scientific problems, some are extra strong and lift more weight than others, some can run faster, some can run further, some can give great speeches, and some can sing better.
They say if you don't use your talent you will loose it, like a weight lifter who quite lifting weights looses his muscles. Since I haven't used my talent in a long time, I have lost it. So, you may want to know, what my talent is. Well I will tell you.
When I was in grade school, we had a wonderful music teacher that thought he saw some talent in me. One year, at the end of the school year, the senior choir put on a big performance. That music teacher asked me to sing with them, in fact, he wanted me to do a solo. I stood in the front row of the choir and when my turn came to sing the solo, I was told to step forward. When I did, most of the audience laughed because I was just a little kid that didn't seem to know what to do. When I started to sing my solo, everyone became quiet. They said I did a great job.
As I grew up and after I was grown up, music and singing was a huge part of my life. I played trumpet in the band, but I sang in the choir and in quartets and also did solos in church and for weddings. I have to say that my favorite was singing in a barbershop quartet. Loved that close harmony. I don't sing any more. They say if you don't use it you lose it. I guess I may have lost it.
Is there a moral to this story? I guess if there was one it would be to use you talents or lose it. Now I know that each and every one of you have a talent and I want you to tell us what it is and a little bit about it. Now, use your talent and have a really great day, you hear?
