A couple weeks ago, I posted a brief blog in regard to my new Fitbit, a gadget I wear on my wrist which assists me in tracking my walking, food intake, sleep efficiency. I have a few friends that also wear a Fitbit and we encourage each other to keep walking … for life.
I put my Fitbit is use on April 23rd of this year, …… which was 74 days ago. In the past 74 days, I have walked 1,000,000 steps.
I can hardly imagine that I have walked that far in about 2-1/2 months. Very early in my recovery from my heart transplant, I made a promise to my donor’s soul that I would take very good care of this amazing gift of life I was given. Walking and being active is one of the ways I try to take care of my gift.
When I was looking at my statistics this evening on my PC and saw the 1,000,000+ on the screen, and thought about this milestone, I was in total awe. Not in awe of my accomplishment, but in AWE of this AMAZING gift that I have been given. I was overcome with emotions and once again, like I do every day, I gave thanks to God for this incredible gift. Mere words will never be enough to give thanks to the loving person who gave me their heart, or to thank his/her family that suffered such an incredible loss. Walking a million steps in 74 days was not done by me, it was a fete accomplished by the drive and the gift that my donor gave me.
Each day, every day, I walk with my donor. We go every where together. We walk for life!
I am truly blessed and will eternally be grateful!!
