Speaking of wonderful Stacy..........

Gotta give you a personal note about our girl Stacy of Magic Love Crow. My grandson Ry is a favorite topic in my other blogs. Ry is my very best inside, outside, upside down thinking wizard, he has Asperger's which is on the Autism Spectrum. I tell you this not because it defines him but rather because it is the reason for his differently abled point of view on life. He continues to be a huge blessing to me and mine and obviously has had an impact on my readers and beyond.

Stacy with the heart of gold also has featured artists as she comes into contact with them and I followed her direction in visiting a lovely artist named Karen Anne of Hummingbelles. Karen Anne had a contest to give away a set of her boy paper dolls. I entered and said to whom I would give the fabulous paper dolls were I to win. Well I didn't win the contest but Ms. Stacy made sure that Ry got a set for Christmas. The pay it forward could have ended there but it didn't.

I let Karen Anne know how thrilled "the boy" was with the boy paper doll and the wonderful pirate clothes and fishing outfits etc. Well you just have to go and see how way cool these are. And also thanked her for the quiet time during the holidays I got when he was absorbed in the playing of "Major" the name given to the doll. Seems my note was well timed by the universe to brighten Karen Anne's day. Certainly I was only thanking her for her part in the holidays, but it went further for her as she said, just when she needed it.

So you see, it is all Stacy's fault.....tee hee, that so many folks were made happy by an act of kindness, with no strings attached. In light of all of this good stuff, I would say to you, let's continue to pay it forward and spread that sunshine and Magic Love Crow blog attitude around. Love you Stacy, you're a goodie.

That paper doll boy is super! What wonderful low-tech toys paper dolls are -- I'm glad some kids today still love them. I played with paper dolls so much when I was a kid -- we used to make our own from cutting up old Eaton catalogues.

I was enjoying reading this post about Stacy of MagicLoveCrow and you surprised the heck out me when I read further and you mentioned my Humming Belles (plus one Beau)!

Your letting me know how much enjoyment Ry was receiving out of his activities with "Major", coloring Major's clothes, making a closet for Major's clothes, and that Major was now a co-friend of Capt. Jack Sparrow and Capt. Barbosa on Ry's pirate ship made me soooooooo happy! I look forward to seeing more of Ry's completed colorings.

Thank you so very much for your generosity in introducing my "Humming Belles" in your blog.

May your days be filled with happiness and love!

Aww, I love stories like this! The Mister's sister was just diagnosed with Aspergers (she's 37) and drawing helps her calm down. So glad Ry got those great dolls!
