Happy Valentine’s Day / National Donor Day


As most people know, today is a day of love ….. a day where we express adoration to those in our lives that we love, are fond of, that we care about. Valentine’s Day is about candy, cards, taking someone special to dinner and sharing that love with others.

So, Happy Valentines Day to all and I’m also sending out my love to my kindred heart friends that have blessed my life. God crossed our paths and I will be forever grateful as all of you inspire each and every day.

May LOVE fill your day, today!

Today is also a special day for me. It is a lessor known day called “National Donor Day” – here is an excerpt from our national organ donor site, www.OrganDonor.gov

February 14: National Donor Day
Focused on five points of life: organs, tissues, marrow, platelets, and blood. Many nonprofit health organizations sponsor blood and marrow drives and organ/tissue sign-ups across the nation. National Donor Day was started in 1998 by the Saturn Corporation and its United Auto Workers partners with the support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and many nonprofit health organizations.

Today, I will honor all donors in my thoughts, prayers and actions. Donors are amazing people, and it is very fitting that today, a day of love, is also National Donor Day. Being an organ donor is an act of love, and act of caring that someone might live on through you, even though your life is ending. It is an amazing selfless act. So many lives have been saved, have been extended, or enhanced. But we need to do more. We desperately need more registered donors. You can sign up HERE & NOW (click link). And, please, start a discussion with your family today about your wishes, in case you’d ever meet with a tragedy. It’s so much easier to make decisions in a crisis, if the family knows YOUR desires.

May God always bless our donors and their families!!

Donor Day
