I am CPR certified, but hope to never use it. I can also decorate cakes but hope to never need to do another one. What are your “skills”?

The photo is just to remind ourselves not to take life too serious.

both of the above. (CPR and cake decorating) Add apparel sewing. I have a robe that's been cut out for at least 10 years.

Your post reminds me that I need to renew my CPR certification...it’s something everyone should have in their back pocket but hopefully never have to use.

Caregiver! I took care of my husband and my mother for the final years of their lives. I so hope not to find that necessary again. It was hard and rewarding and I would do it again but I hope it won't be necessary.

I did the same and feel just as you do. I am so glad I did it and never want to do it again!

I use all my skills. Sewing, alterations, quilting, knitting, crochet, teaching group exercise classes, cooking. In my earlier years I have been both a costumer for the ballet, and a wedding gown alterations specialist.

Your skills are God given gifts. And you know what they say... 'Use it or lose it'.

Changing a tire. Too old anymore. I've perfected the 'helpless' look.
