It felt so good to have the time and the talent to share what I love


One December before Christmas I visited the Children's Hospital and stamped with a little boy who had been in fire. He was badly burned all over and he was bandaged from neck to his toes. One are had mobility. The hair on his head was gone and his eyebrows were singed. You could tell he was in pain form the look on his face when they pushed his wheelchair in the room.
I asked what the can of soda was for that they placed on the table. The nurse said we had to bribe him to get out of bed so we could change his sheets. It was so painful to move he didn't get out of bed even to pee.
So he's here sitting in front of me with his big brown eyes and a pout on his face. He looked as if he was going to cry.
I was stamping snowflakes, using the stipple brush to tap navy ink around the edges of the card. He watched for a while with curiosity as the ink transferred to the paper then he was willing to try it. He gently reached out for the stipple brush wincing with pain. He gently tapped the ink pad and lightly touched the paper. Before long he was slamming the ink pad and slamming the paper with that stipple brush. I sat back in amazement as he was smiling and having a good time! No pain was apparent now!!!
He was stamping away with joy until he noticed the nurse enter the room out of the corner of his eye and then...
the pain on his face returned as he put down the stipple brush and cradled his arm as he did before.
That little boy changed my life! He was the first of a long line of wonderful experiences. 
It felt so good to have the time and the talent to share what I love. It felt so good to know that for 15 min this boy was no longer in any pain. It helped me see that I am needed and that there children here who need what we have to offer!
