I have determined that my personality is like that of a sparkler, and John's is more like a pilot light. He is steady and always there to start a fire.
I am more like fireworks or a sparkler. I ideate quickly and brilliantly and then burn out suddenly. That is why John can sit in the moment for hours and listen and share with someone. I can last about 5 min. max. It is interesting how we are all so individual. I love that fact. It does not mean one person is better than another, it just means we have different tasks to perform. A sparkler would not be good for lighting a furnace. And would you use a pilot light for a fireworks display? There are certainly disadvantages to being a sparkler... ever been burned by one? Tolerance means we accept each others gifts and flaws. We not only need to tolerate, but to celebrate each others uniqueness. How genius to have created such diversity! Soon the red buds and dogwoods will bloom, they are completely different but are magnificent together... but more on that later. Today, find the beauty in who you are because you are wonderfully made and the world needs you! Go play, have fun and be creative.... recipe for a cheap thrill today,
go buy some bubbles and a large bubble wand (you don't need a child to do this with, you have one already right within you) and go make some magic!
