I always told them I am not good at art work, but when you need a story I will be there for you. My art is still stick figures, but I have learned to write and enjoy making up stories for them. The boys mostly asked for the story, which I wrote and they read. My daughter at times just wanted the story, but other times we played a game. I would give her one or two sentences and she had to add to the story. There were no rules for where the story went and we had fun. Often times we would create stories while one of her brothers practiced soccer, so we had over an hour to create. In the end she would create her own story for school.
I believe one of our greatest gifts is creating. You can draw, write, sing and it doesn’t matter if it’s good or not, just create. Put passion in your creation and feel the joy and love come to life. There was a time both my writing and my niece’s art skills come together. I simply said I was writing a new book and needed a cover. We discussed the topic and she got excited about creating the cover. About a month later she sent me a picture of her artwork. I proudly added to my book cover and was so very happy to publish that book called Thanks Giving the true meaning is Love. It sure is and when creating coming together it makes everything so much more wonderful.
Now go out and create something, you will be amazed with the joy and love you will feel from this simple act.
Much Joy and Love to you and yours.
