Twenty Four. . . .Twenty four hours from as I type this. Twenty Four Hours I will be celebrating three absolutely amazing years of life given to me. Three amazing years of so many things that it just might take me another 24 hours to list all of them. Today is probably the day that my Donor Family lost someone very special to them. Tonight is not a day of Celebration for them as it is for me. . .for that I cry. For them at this time of year, I cry. My heart is heavy with sorrow for the loss that they have. A void that perhaps even knowing that my Donor lives on through me is not enough to make the hurt soften for them. For that I cry. So Tonight I wish to send out a Christmas letter to my Donor.
How I long so much to know your name. I would speak it with much admiration and love. Another year has come and gone and I have taken care of your lungs as I promised. The gift you have given is one that cannot be purchased at any mall or in any store. You gave me the gift of life, the gift of love and the gift of sacrifice. I know this time of year must be difficult for the family you left behind. I think of the presents they had wrapped with your name on them that you never got to open. . . I can only imagine the sorrow they felt December 9th 2007.
I honestly think of you every day. I may not know what kind of life you lead or the things you accomplished while you were here on earth, but I am grateful that you chose to be an Organ Donor, my Hero. One of my Christmas wishes every year for the last three, have been peace and blessings upon your family and loved ones. With more sincerity than I could ever express in words I want to tell you how much I love you! I love you and I know I will get to meet you in the next life. That we will be joined as the sisters that we are. I can't wait until I can thank you face to face when we are reunited in Heaven. You are my Angel, my Hero, and my friend.
