The “VISUAL” Gift…

“Gift”…

I’m definitely a visual person seeing would be a sense I would hate to live without…

k3794701

All senses are just as important… k4946237

but, to not be able to see the sun come up k10593746 … the green of the grass k3949787 … the blue of the sky with the white clouds k10158051 drifting by… would devastate me…

  

The smiles on facesk8525124 … the colors of our world k0347619 …

Maybe it’s because of the “art” in me…

Color has always played such an important part in my life… The blending… the hues… the brightness… the darks (cools)… the lights (warms) … the softnessk3697316

I paint k8413105… I sew k10148443 … I decorate… I  match clothes… I plant flowersk9497083 … I bakek11172031 … I choose colors in buying a car… furniture… decorative items…

It’s important to me!…

The beauty that  is front of us…

Even the most ugly of things… I can see the good and beauty of them…

Be it an object or human

I’ve been said to have an “eye”  k4567453to put things together…

If I do… it is a blessing from God

I’ve had no training

I just seem to see things in a magical way k2562100 …

I’ve known of this talent since I was quite young …

My coloring in books…

My drawings

The love of pencils… papers…textures… paints… crayons

Anything!… that could achieve some kind of visual stimulus  for others to view…

I feel so fortunate to have this wonderful gift… k10405869

It gives me pleasure…

It brings me happiness

It gives others something pleasing to look at…

It keeps my mind busy in thinking of new projects… ideas abound! …

New things to make with my hands

This “visual” concept helped with my chosen… given… field of work that I did most of my life…

Using it to benefit the special kidsk0662770I worked with… and now my own Grandkids

“Don’t Just Be Anther Crayon in the Box”…

While walking in a toy store the day before today, I overheard a Crayon Box k2276015with many things to say.

“I don’t like red k1545034!” said Yellow k1545024… And Green k1544896said, “Nor do I! And no one here likes Orangek2411456 , But no one knows quite why.”

“We are a box of crayons k6684207 that really don’t get along,” … said Blue k1545029to all the others. “Something here is wrong!”

Well, I bought that box of crayons k2276015and took it home with me and laid out all the crayons k0463005 so the crayons could all see…

They watched me as I colored with Red k1545034and Blue k1545029and Green k1544896… And Black and White and Orange k2411456and every color in between

They watched as Green k1544896became the grass k3949787 and Blue k1545029became the sky k10158051 … The Yellow sun was shining bright on White clouds drifting… by.

Colors changing as they touched… becoming something new. ..They watched me as I colored …k0366961They watched till I was through…

And when I’d finally finished… I began to walk away… And as I did the Crayon box k6684207 had something more to say…

“I do like Red k1545034!” said the Yellow k1545024and Green k1544896said, “So do I!…  and Blue k1545029, you are terrific!…  So high up in the sky.”

We are a Box of Crayons k2276015… each of us unique, but when we get together the picture is complete…
