Time at the Bailey-Boushay House: what love is all about

This morning, I watched a video from King 5 News that my friend Kaitlyn, shared with me. The story highlights a service project that Kaitlyn's younger sister and two friends completed this Spring. The 8th grade students decided to make routine visits to see a man named Tim at the Bailey-Boushay House though Virginia Mason Hospital.

After watching the video, I'll admit I was totally brought to tears (I'm apparently good at crying these days). It is incredible to see how the simplest acts of kindness can truly change a person's life. Thank you to Brittany, Allison, and Stephanie for being an inspiration and showing others exactly what love is about.

"The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around.... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing." -Larry Dossey
