Day 46 and just an impression

Guess it's just one of those days.

It's day 46 and if only I could stay out of my head. Some day's I feel invisible and some day's it's just good to be invisible. I wonder if anyone would even notice. I wonder how many people feel that way? I never know who reads except for those that tell me.

I have been writing to Josephine of the in Uganda. She tells me that she reads the blog stories to the children there. She tells me that the children have decided to start painting each other's faces. I don't think I could express the feeling that I get just knowing that.

I feel somehow that I get so caught up in my thoughts that I forget that the children are hearing my words as Josephine reads them out loud.

So to the children ..I see you. I think about you and I hope good things for your lives. Keep painting, I hope that you get many supplies so that you can paint and paint to find some joy in your life so far away. I pray for your happiness and I hope that you will all be able to go to school. I wish these same good things for my own children and my six grandchildren. I am working on a way to bring attention to your needs there. There are so many people in the world that need help. So .. I will make a donation to your organization there .. to Josephine to do as she wishes for the children for any painting that I sell from here on out. I hope that it will help you. That means that some portion of each painting sold will go to you and some will go to me so that I can keep painting.

Please know that I do care for you .. and I see you.

Day forty six and if you would like to own this face and help to provide something good for the children of email me at This is a face painted on sewn papers that my mother saved through out her life and now I am using them as a canvas. Today's portrait is $46. Check out the the organization and see the children. Have a great day! See you tomorrow.


  1. It's amazing just how much impact one individual blogger can have and this story brings that to the fore so well. If we all could do just something, not matter how small, it would make such a huge difference.

    1. It is a wonder what technology can do .. I have to say I am overwhelmed with gratitude that my work has in any small way been a catalyst to someones joy and especially that of a child. I do know that my own grandchildren love to paint .. and so when they see me they ask me if I brought the paints. i LOVE that!!!
