Putting a smile on people's faces is such a delight! This morning a little 5 year old painted a yellow bird on a flowering branch. He and I told a story about his bird who sang such a beautiful song another bird befriended him. The two birds became best friends and sang happy songs in the forest for all the animals to hear. What a precious time with this amazing little fella!

The sliding glass doors at the front of Carilion open and suffering enters. This suffering is not limited to the patients in their rooms or the family and friends who attend them. Today, while walking through the glass doors into the volunteer office, I discovered that sorrow had also entered; recently, two women each lost an adult son and a third lost a 22 year old nephew.
