it's no secret how much patty from south africa
has moved my soul.yesterday we were wrapping up
work on a donation site that we'll be putting up
i was so tickled that zakk quietly slid on board
and is helpin in this too. so now, every single one
of us is part of this...and that tickles me to no
i ran a test run by patty. so she could add or tweak.
she wrote later....she had shared it with the women
she works with. one of these women in particular
has her story on a page on the new site.
a remarkable woman. a woman, who when i read about,
i just cried and was so moved with her spirit.
well, patty shared the site with her!
i told this to bob later on the phone.
actually, i squealed this to bob later on the phone.
i heard myself goin' on and on and i actually said
'bob, she's a real person and she really saw it
and it really mattered to her!'
what did i think would happen??
laughin' at myself here.....
i sounded like i was six years old.
but i was so darn excited.
i woke up last nite with a few last minute ideas
i'll be workin' on this weekend.
middle of the nite, writin' notes to myself....
this whole thing is happening because
it is filled with tremendous pain. it's ugly, sickening,
and in the middle of all of that....they're over there
clappin' with joy that we're doin' this...
and i'm wakin' up in the middle of the nite smiling
and excited with ideas.
life is the most fullest thing, isn't it?!
patty's been thanking us....and i don't know how to
tell her....it's them that have changed our lives over
here. it's them that have broken me open even more.
and it's them that have brought my sons and i together
on a project that matters so much to all of us.
we sat in the studio late last nite goin' over some stuff
regarding this project.
josh looked at us all sitting there and said 'we never
it's not true.
there was a lotta playin' in between.
and it's not true cause it's not work.
and i think that's why it feels like it never stops.
we always gather and brainstorm ideas.
and so many of them are filled with love.
i hope that part never stops.
i looked at their faces....i thought of all they're
doin' to make this happen.....
and i saw three tremendous young men.
for a moment in time, they're lives blend with these
women's lives and even if there isn't one dollar donated,
something magical has taken place.
and we'll be offering you that magic tomorrow evening...
i am so darn excited.
