I'm an Expert!
Actually, my point today is that you really don't have to be an expert to make a positive difference. Just about a year ago, I stopped by the library's teen zone to inquire about starting a knitting club. I told the librarian about the Knit-a-Square African charity and its dedication to outfitting orphanages with blankets and hats; told her how simple participation would be and plans for the knitting club were born.
The thing is, I'm no expert; although I do have some skills with knitting needles, skills enough to help the teens learn to make the squares required for this project. And, we had a couple of other adults come alongside with similar skills to help teach the beginners. In all, I'd bet 15 or 20 people now know basic knitting who didn't know it before this last year.
You don't have to be the expert to everyone.
It may be enough to be the expert to someone.
You just might know enough to make a pretty large difference after all!
