What's Your Super Power?

My husband once said that he hoped our kids would have his IQ, but be as smart as me.  I laughed.  And for good reason.  You see, he’s super smart.  The kind of smart where you never want to be on the opposite team as him in Trivial Pursuit, ever.  Put him on the same team as my brother-in-law Mike and you might as well just hang it up, because you will never win.

But, why did he say he wished the kids were as smart as me?  Well, you see, common sense is my super power.  I may not always, or ever, win at Trivial Pursuit, but if you want to get something done, I’m your (wo) man! 
All of this talk, combined with the frenzy of our Annual Meeting being held this week, got me thinking.  We’ve been working on this Annual Meeting theme, Many Words of Thanks, to be able to show our donors just how much gratitude we have for each of them.  Really, their generosity is what allows the Foundation to provide scholarships to hundreds and hundreds of students each and every year.  Their generosity is what allows the Foundation to give grants out quarterly to non-profits all across Grant County.  Generosity is their super power.

We just couldn’t do it without all of our superheroes.  What’s your super power?  Figure it out and use it.
Peace, Blessings, and Common Sense,
