"Have I done any good in the world today?"

"We are here on earth to do good for others. What the others are here for, I don't know." ~ W. H. Auden
Bill Vaugn said, " A three-year-old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm."  Tuesday, April 6, we met at Ardis home to make some simple dolls for children around the world to play with.  The dolls are made from a  15" square of fabric,  a small circle made into a face, a bit of stuffing and lace, and yarn for hair.    They will be shipped in containers to areas in the world where children are living with war, poverty and uncertainty.  We hope that each child who receives one of these dolls will feel the love that it is made with and hope in their future ~ and thesheer  joy of being a child.  

We all worked together and finished sixteen of the little dolls.  We then enjoyed a lovely luncheon in Ardis beautiful sunroom, where we watched snow swirling around and moments later, the sun shining on the fields below.
