While my daugher and son in law were in the hospital awaiting the delivery of their stillborn daughter they were given a beautiful hand knitted hat,sweater and blanket as well as a hand painted memory box. When I went to see and hold my granddaughter it was such a comfort to see her in this beautiful outfit. I was told that the items were knittted by staff and volunters. I am so gratefull for this thoughtful gesture. It got me to thinking so many times I think of volunteering my time but life gets busy and sometimes after 40 hours of being a "helping professional" I am not up to more "helping". But I now realize there are so many things I can do that use the skills that help me relax and reduce stress. I'm not much of a knitter but I can crotchet a blanket, I can also to a cross stitch top for a memory box. I can be a comfort to someone else.
