One Grain of Sand

I want it all. I want to be the best mother, best wife, best daughter, coach, artist, friend. I want to help everyone. Be there for everyone's needs. Comfort, console, fix, heal. Some times I feel there is so much to do that I can't even make a dent in the problem. That can feel very paralyzing.
I read Jen Lemen's blog frequently. She inspires me a great deal by doing just what she can do to help others. Most of us are not rich or powerful, but it is amazing what one average person can do to positively impact others. Please go read her stories. Donate if you can. If you can't donate, consider a kind word or comment to contribute to the goodwill. Every little bit helps.
I am shipping these off to Jen for her next trip to Africa. Hopefully they will find loving arms with the girls there. A smile and a doll may not change the world, but they can maybe add a tiny moment of happiness. That is what I can offer. Good enough.

The kids will love them. I am sure they will treasure them forever. What a very kind thing to do. I am certainly going to go over to her blog and see what I can do as an artist.
