Things I'm Good At

Everyone is good at something. No, really, everyone is. Whether it be making the perfect PB&J or creating a beautiful piece of artwork - everyone has got something!

Personally, I like to think I'm good a several things.

I bake amazing cakes. It's true. My Chocolate Mocha Cake will leave you breathless and wondering where I've been all your life. Lemon cake? Yeah, I got it and if you're anything like a former pastor of mine, you'll ask for more.

I've recently struck gold with a Gluten-Free Peanut Butter cookie that melted in my Boy's mouth. He ate an entire batch, by himself, over Christmas.

I'm good with people. I like folks. I like to see them happy. I'll go above and beyond. I'll remember little details, like the fact that my boss likes her heater turned on in her office on cold mornings, she likes the red, heart cup for her tea, and she has a special place in her heart for soft, hand made caramels.

I like to organize, from time to time. I love lists that are alphabetized. I like binders with dividers that store useful information for later.

I'm geeky that way.

I love, love, love to throw a party, which may be why Beloved tries to keep me at two or three parties per year. I'd throw one every month if he'd let me!

Now, while I'm good at a few things, I'm bad at others.

I'm not a numbers girl. They confuse me.Sudoku? I'm completely lost.

I cannot bake home-made bread, which is probably a good thing.

And sadly, I'm not a home decorator. I have friends for that.

Which is the beautiful part of being a girl with friends; there's always someone I can call, express that I'm a dork, and ask for  help.

I suppose that makes me good at asking for help before I'm over my head!

See, everyone is good at something!
