Every moment that you give, more will be returned to you. But you have to be still and allow the gifts to embrace you. Gifts of money, notoriety, success are fleeting. The gifts that quiet the hunger of the sole are only found through others, through appreciation of what we have a peace that is found when you touch the maker.
This TED Conference video was passed on to me as a thank you for time I had donated. I believed this gift of beauty is greater than anything I could contribute to your day.
Why do I design dolls? Why do I write children’s books? Why have I chosen to live with less for the chance to leave a smile behind?
In this video Louie Schwartzberg said it best, “We protect what we fall in love with.”
I’m in love with the innocence of children. I’m in love with the way a doll captures and preserves the warmest of memories from our pasts. I’m in love with reflecting the beauty of diversity. I’m in love with the potential of every mind, every heart. But most of all, I’m in love with you. I love every post, every picture, every family and every girl or boy.
I want to protect innocence. I hope to preserve and cherish your childhood memories or rewrite them if need be to erase pain. I want to celebrate diversity in such a way that we are enhanced and elated by our differences. I hope to encourage each to reach for their greatest dream, to love learning and exploring. And if you are lonely, I want to provide a family where you know you are loved.
Via E is not a toy company…it is a family where dreams are the steps to the best that life can offer.
I hope for you to live inspired. Inspiration is all around…and you are my inspiration.
From my heart to yours,
