Think, Feel, Sense

“Minds think, emotions feel, bodies sense, but the soul simply ‘knows’.”

Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year. Tomorrow is our annual “walk” with our local “Organ Procurement Organization”, Lifebanc. I’ve written about the walk the past three years …. 2010, 2011 and 2012!

It is a day where we honor our donors, and raise funds to help Lifebanc to spread the good message of organ donation.

Because of recent events that have touched us here at My2ndHeartBeat World Headquarters, my senses …. my mind and my emotions have all been in overdrive. And tomorrow is truly a special day, an emotional day for me …. my thoughts have wandered all over the place the past few days. I prayed for guidance, for clarity and gave thanks time and time again. I was looking for an “answer” …. yet I didn’t know the question, perhaps a chance to “center” myself ….. and as is always the case, the answer was within me ….. my soul simply knew!

Tomorrow is not about me at all …… it IS about THANKING GOD and honoring the people who saved our lives, our HEROES, after they took their last breath. Our donors have touched us …. touched the way we think, the way we feel and the way we sense things …… they have truly touched our souls.

It is all part of God’s plan ….. my job is to be grateful to all, to give thanks every day to God, and embrace a life that both God and my donor want me to live.

I know there will be tears tomorrow. They are ever-present when we honor our donors. Tears of sorrow, of happiness  …… of life!

The soul simply KNOWS!! And my soul says THANK YOU!!
