SPRING--A TIME FOR JOY

Saturday, March 23, 2013

MANY YEARS AGO I USED TO MAKE RAGGDOLLS. I ONLY WORKED ON THEM WHEN I WAS HAPPY. SINCE 2006 WHEN MY SON WAS SO ILL AND ME ALMOST DIEING, I HAVEN'T HAD MUCH HAPPINESS. I REALLY HAD TO WORK AT IT EVERYDAY. NOW THAT SAID, I'M CHANGING THAT. WHEN I MAKE THE DOLLS, I DONATE THEM TO THE HOSPITAL AND BATTERED WOMEN'S SHELTER. IT SHOWS THE CHILDREN THAT SOMEONE CARES AND PUTS A LITTLE JOY IN THEIR LIFE AND IN MINE. WHEN I FINISH EACH DOLL, I SIGN THEM '' PATTY DOLL " AND GIVE EACH THEIR OWN BIRTHDAY. WHAT IS IT THAT GIVES YOU JOY ? EVEN IF IT'S MAKING CUP CAKES FOR A NEIGHBOR, DO IT TODAY.

    What a nice thing to do for others that gives you joy too. You're right, life is short and precious and we should all spread as much joy for ourselves and others as possible every day.

Have a great weekend,
