Today’s Quote is from Erma Bombeck

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
If you don’t know Erma Bombeck, she was an American humorist, who wrote about life in suburbia from a mid-western housewife’s point of view in a newspaper column. Her column was read by millions and she became a prolific writer, television personality and an American icon.
Her quote is serious and something that we should all think about. We have been given the gift of talent. We all have the ability to be something that we want to be. We have a brain that reasons, that learns that has the power to dream. The other gift we have been given is a body that can do. Our body has the ability to do great things, to make great things; to take those dreams and create something from them. That’s Talent.
When you are at the end of your life, what would you tell God? What will you tell yourself? Those are the only two that matter. Your God and Yourself. Will you be able to say to both of them that you spent all of the talent you were given. Will you be able to say to them, “I used EVERYTHING you gave me?” When it comes to our talents, we should die broke.
I can see Erma asking that question when she passed.
