Walk, Donors, Friends, Love


“Seven months with just one question
Then you answered with your life
You had one foot crossing heaven 
I was one small breath behind.”

Between Your Heart and Mine ~ Gregory Todd

Some random and rambling  thoughts about a special event that was held yesterday … Lifebanc’s annual “Gift of Life Walk and Run” at Blossom Music Center.

THANK YOU GOD FOR MY DONOR. For me, that’s what the walk is about!

It’s simple to say that yesterday was special, but to feel how special it is … in your soul, in your being … takes it to a higher level.

Thank you God, for such GREAT friends, always ready to help you up, brush you off and give you a loving smile after life has knocked you down.

Early morning rain that changed to sunshine ….. a simple, but welcomed miracle for thousands.

There is so much love here ….. you can see it, feel, touch it!

Chaos!! The masses of people!! But still the best day of the year!!

Tears in private, behind sunglasses, quiet thoughts, everlasting memories, more tears, lots of laughter, warm hugs that last a lifetime …… all possible because one special person made the decision to donate their organs after they took their final breath.

The angels are here ….. I can sense them.

Precious people, precious times ……. precious lives!!

The beauty of the garden is incredible, even though it was crowded ….. I am here FOR and because of my donor!

Breathless ….. literally and figuratively!

Good food, good friends …… a lifetime of memories!

Thank you God for EVERYTHING!! For my donor, for life, for my family, for my friends.
