Giving never gets old

I deliver women’s and children’s magazines to a shelter a few miles from my home that is home to over 60 families. Today I had the privilege of meeting a young mother and her 4-year-old daughter, who was playing hopscotch. I introduced myself and asked if her daughter would like a magazine. She was very appreciative and said her daughter would love it. The little girl was so pleased to show me how she could write her name on the label on the cover. I drove away with a smile seeing the smile on her face. My mission is to make sure every child in every shelter has that chance.
