Alex Fine has no perfect family but he is given a special gift. Everyone has a gift. This gift could be a family, a true friend, a talent, wealth, among others. What is your gift?

My first and of course most important is my parents who have been with me my entire life, but I am also grateful for future gifts that I have not received yet, such as my future husband who I have not met yet. Next is that I am an artist and have been since I was a little girl. This I consider to be a God given talent, which has been an incredible gift to me.

Some days I believe my gift to literally be eternal Patience. I have so much of it, barely anything bothers me. I would happily share some of this. But I often wish I could have a little less as you can end up being a sort of 'doormat'

My gifts are my imagination and my creativity. I have a knack for coming up with things to do and create. My mind is literally always filled with tons of ideas. My problem is seeing this ideas come to fruition.

Wow! That is great. I have a soft heart to artists be it in performing arts or visual arts. As for your future husband, you will find the one in your right time.

My gift is listening. I had events happen to me when I was a teenager and no one listened. So whenever anyone needs a shoulder to cry on or someone to just listen to them, I am there.

My husband is my gift. He supports me wonderfully, and I think we compliment each other...

My family and our animals. I used to think I had some artistic/creative talent, but that gift seems to have been taken back now.

I think I also have this gift of creativity or imagination in mind. The problem is, I don't give myself a chance to try. Sometimes, I just let these great ideas pass.

I think another gift I have is for teaching children. I enjoy working with young children and I get a lot from it as well. It's amazing to see the children I work with learn and develop so many new skills. I believe teaching to be one of my gifts and passion.

That's a hard one. I think it's often hard to see in ourselves what we are gifted with. I've had people tell me leadership but I always feel inadequate in those roles. I do think I'm a good listener. People often come to me to "talk" when they need someone to listen to for a bit.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

One of my gifts is to be a good organizer. I think it might be because I'm basically disorganized and I've had to put a lot of effort in to figuring out how to organize myself.

Then, I bet you are a good leader too because listening is one of the ingredients of being a good leader. Not everybody can lend an ear and listen from someone's hurts and pains.

I know it's not much but I believe god gave the gift of creativity and being mentally strong. Creativity meaning I like to draw and paint but due to Capitalism its making it very hard for me to pursue what I'm good at.

This is so sweet! :D

I'm going to borrow this gift and say that my husband and Zoey, our little lab mix, are my gifts. They complete me and make me a better person. :)
