I am Blessed

Smiling black and white cats,

and a pastel tie dye swirl,

next to a rainbow paisley

and a gray marble print,

carefully measured, cut, folded,

and sewn strategically together.

Every stitch done with time, care and love

because I am a mask maker.

Packaged in plastic

with a note of well wishes,

and a hand-lettered thank you

because I am a mask maker.

Inside a manilla envelope

the journey begins

from Wisconsin to New York,

California and more,

reaching many homes

around the country,

covering faces

and giving an extra layer

of hope and protection

from fears of not knowing

where the virus lives.

Touching and protecting

the lives and faces of many

I have never met,

because I am blessed

to be a mask maker

during the pandemic of 2020.

I BECAME A MASK MAKER

BECAUSE YOUR LIFE IS IMPORTANT TO ME.

    1. Thank you Carol. It is a blessing for me because I am getting paid to make masks. I make some for free but also get paid. I think I am helping people but they are also helping me because I am getting paid for most of them. Thanks for reading Carol. I hope you are doing well.
