365 Reasons to Smile – Day 45

yingyangIf my hands could do what my brain actually wants them to do, I’d be a phenomenal artist.

Unfortunately, most artistic ideas stay in my head because I have never been good at drawing or painting or sculpting.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy making things with my hands.  I love sitting down with a group of kids and some jars of Play-Doh.

No one expects our creations to be perfect. We just want to enjoy the experience of creating.snake

And that always makes me smile.
