My daughter asked me this morning if some people really had superpowers and I said yes almost immediately. I believe that the gifts that God gives us are superpowers. That’s what I told her along with a small story. I said that some people could be having a terrible day, so much so that they have thoughts of hurting themselves and that all it takes in most cases is some kind words from a loving person to break up those awful thoughts. I said “Do you remember the time when we walked into a supermarket and we saw the manager whom we’ve talked to quite often passing us by? You were quite young at the time but you saw him ran up to him and asked if you could give him a hug. He looked up at me for permission and I nodded my head yes. You gave him the biggest hug ever and he turned to you and said,”I really needed that right now.” As I told the story to her I started crying because of the huge heart that my daughter has for others. I was tearing up so bad I had to pull the car over and put it in park. My daughter reached over and grabbed my hand until I calmed down just proving what I was talking about. I told her,” You are a superhero and You have a super special power. Some of you who are reading this story may be asking,” What is my superpower,” Just pray and ask God he will give you an answer. Dear heavenly father, I know that you have placed us on this Earth to be able to help one another succeed in their journey with you. We all have gifts that you have given us and I just ask that you show me mine. What can I offer thy neighbor that is suffering, what can I do to change this world one person at a time? Thank you for giving me the strength to stay on your path. In Jesus name amen.
