Carriers of Good Will - A Pleiades

Carriers of Good Will

cuddly comfort and joy
coping becomes easier
crying children smile again
caring staff bring the teddy
cautious parents are relieved
catch the enthusiasm
community pitches in

Author's note:
This simple poem describes in only seven lines with seven syllables in each line how God uses a cuddly teddy bear to bring comfort to the sick who come through the Iredell Memorial Hospital Emergency Room (in Statesville, NC). To date, 1-15-2012, more than 250 children and some adults with Dementia or Alzheimers who have come into the ER have received a teddy bear. The parent receives a copy of my poem Nan's good will bears (found here at Wordchimes) and the child receives the teddy bear. I thank God for the vision of this ministry and the multitudes who have a better understanding of what good will really means. Catch the enthusiasm!

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
