Late bloomers are special. We all have our own individual timing and just like flowers, we bloom in different seasons. Often appearing to the rest of the world as just ordinary people something happens that sets them apart. It doesn’t always have to be a significant talent like Grandma Moses (who started painting at the age of 78) or Frank McCourt, author of Angela’s Ashes, (who began writing at the age of 64); instead late bloomers can also discover simpler gifts and talents at any age. It’s a brand new year, what gift or talent will you reveal?
