Magazines are comfort food for these shelter moms and kids

 

I  look forward to every magazine delivery, and last Friday evening was no exception.  I walked into the lobby of a  Boston women’s shelter carrying  recent issues of O, The Oprah magazine, SELF, and Vogue under one arm, and Martha Stewart Living, People, Whole Living, and Every Day with Rachael Ray in the other.  I  was met by many women coming from dinner – several with young children in tow.   When they saw the variety of magazines they were thrilled and so genuinely appreciative.    I sense the magazines bring  a sense of normalcy to their routine.   I feel so lucky to be able to bring comfort to so many women and families during a difficult period in their lives.
