Given


Margaret and Jack had been inseparable for over sixty loving years. Now that he was gone, she was completely alone.
It was only natural for Margaret to spend more time as a hospital volunteer. She could always be found in Pediatrics, rocking the most critically ill infants. 

Her reason was simple: “I have a lot of love to give, and love is what these babies need.”

  6. What a beautiful picture and story. I agree, love is for giving and the beautiful thing about it is, the more you give it away, the more you get back.

    Hugs, Julia
