Giving All You Have

Red Poppies 9” x !2” watercoloron watercolor paper

What happens when you put your full effort into something? When you put your full effort into a painting.? When you give all you can even when you think it won’t be enough?

A little over four years ago, my husband was in the hospital. We were lucky he beat the odds and lived but he did lose his leg. Our young Granddaughter filled our hearts with love and brightened our day with the following card:

Dear Grandpa,

I hope that you will get better. And here is some money to help pay for the “prostetic” leg. I know it’s not much but it’s all I had. I love you and Grandma.

Love Lucy

“I know it’s not much” Many times we think that what we have to give and to share is not much but we should go ahead and share, put our heart into the project and give all that we have. Our efforts might share the beauty and joy we see with those around us.
