Quote of the Day
– “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.” — Erma Bombeck

Erma Bombeck was always one of my favorite authors. I used to love reading her books. Today’s quote really spoke to me today and I hope it did the same for you. use the talent God gave you today – whether that is being the best spouse, mother, grandmother, artist, cook, whatever! Use every single bit of that talent to bless others.
