Nurture Your Talents: A Look Back


Yesterday we received word that John’s 91-year-old uncle passed away, so it seems like reposting a blog written in January of 2014 in which I reminded you to nurture your talents.

I’ve always known that Uncle Bud is a talented artist. In fact, one of his sketches and one of his paintings hang on the walls of our house, but when I entered his apartment, it was obvious that creating art brings him great joy.

  1. One of Uncle Bud’s paintings hung in Aunt Jackie & Uncle Hank’s house before it hung in Granny’s room. I always admired it when I would visit Granny. Now it hangs in my bedroom. Whenever I look at it I can imagine myself in the scene.
