Tedi the Love Clown


--by Tedi, posted Apr 2, 2007

I go to the Hospital every Saturday, in my bright costume, and long eyelashes,and an august clown face.  I hand the patient a 4" Love Pillow.. hand made by myself, and a couple of friends.

I say, "This is a Love Pillow, It is to remind you that you have a Heavely Comforter,

God is still in charge, you know,

And He loves you so much,

He knows what your needs are even before you ask.

He will never leave you, He loves you with an Unending Love,  And I love you too !!!"

--Tedi the Love Clown

I have been clowning for 24 years now, and this has been my most important experience.  I see between 80 and 120 patients each week and wouldn't miss it for the life in me.

sewingsphynx wrote: The kind of clown you are is called a "Caring Clown". Rather than being the centre of attention you put the attention square on the patient. I used to do this at a chronic care facility. The smiles alone are worth the time it takes to get your make up on. Keep up the good work!
