A gifted heart changed me forever. When I walk into someone’s life, I am forever there for them. If they need a shoulder to lean on, I am there. If they need an ear to hear their words, I will listen. If they need me just to sit in silence with them, I will do that. I will laugh with them, cry with them. Always!
There are days when I am to volunteer that I dread facing the weather and/or the drive. Or, I dread getting up at “oh dark thirty” in the morning. Or, I have a good hunch that there may only be a few sleepy kids at the driving school to half listen to my transplant story.
But, then I think of the AMAZING gift that was sewed inside my chest and the PROMISES I made not only to my donor, but also to God …… the promise to HELP at any time ….. those thoughts alone put a smile on my face and hope in my heart …. so, I go and offer help to others and share my story of organ donation.
It’s who I am, it’s what I do.
