Good Night Margaret: A Love Story Against The Odds

--by Melissa McGlensey, syndicated from huffingtonpost.com, Sep 08, 2014

Love conquers all, and few people better understand that than the couple in this poignant film.

The 11-and-a-half-minute-long New York Times documentary, entitled, "Good Night Margaret," shows a glimpse into the lives of Margaret "Muffi" Lavigne and Chris Plum. Both Lavigne and Plum have muscular dystrophy, and the two met and fell in love at the Hospital for Special Care in New Britain, Connecticut.

"I realized all the suffering in the hospital led up to me meeting her," Plum says in the film, "and finding the love of my life, and really finding true happiness."

Watch their touching love story above, which will have you reaching for your loved ones and appreciating the little things that we take for granted every day.
