All my life I have read and heard about developing my talents, not hiding lights under bushels, and practice makes permanent.
As with the parable of the Talents I was given certain talents from birth, one of those talents (delicately put) is my desire to persevere, some at times calls it stubbornness, but that is a bit harsh.
My mother has always tried to help me increase my talents, I relied heavily on my perseverance to acquire some skill with these; ballet, piano, clarinet, knitting, and now even sewing.
Last night I stepped into a new classroom where there was no teacher, and so I called the smartest person I could, my mother. We spoke for a few minutes and then I dived into my project- a living room pillow. Slowly now I will add to my home, add to my talents. And by posting this I will not be hiding this under a bushel. I can now use my pillow to hide other things such as chocolate.

Brandon decided to tape me without me knowing it. Enjoy if you want to watch.
