Life’s Lessons #45

This post marks my 200th post on WordPress! I thank you for reading!!!


In my continuing series about Life’s Lessons (see recent older posts along the right side in the archives) today I wanted to talk about #45 which is ~ Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

Why is this a lesson that we have to repeat day after day?

As almost any transplant patient can attest, there’s always some slight nagging issue, a worry, a pain, a fear going on in your life. Last week I hab labs drawn and after I picked up my copy later in the day, I saw one item that was slightly elevated, and 2 other critical ones that were on the low side. Of course, I worried. A day or so later, my transplant coordinator called and said they got the labs, we’re not making any changes, drink plenty of fluids and we’ll see you in December for my next appointment.

For me, it was a relief. But, at the same time my mind is saying … “It’s always something”. Sure, it’s always something. I think that to live life we have to work at it. We have to fret about germs, about our diet, about getting enough exercise. Life has its ups and downs, its set-backs and triumphs. It sure isn’t tied with a bow, but it sure is a gift!!

And, what a gift it is!!

If you are not a registered organ donor, please give becoming one some serious consideration. It is the ULTIMATE gift you can give …… GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE. (It won’t have a bow on it, but it will mean EVERYTHING to the recipients)

Giving the ULTIMATE gift!
