This time of year holds so many memories & emotions...good, scary, terrifying and wonderful. I was shown so much charity & love by my friends, family...community and strangers. Every year I get to celebrate another Christmas that I wouldn't have. I also get to celebrate another year of marriage to my amazing husband (16 years in January). My Donor gave me so much more than just "lungs"....I know one day when I too have done all The Lord has for me on earth, I'll get to embrace her & thank her in person for unselfish gift she shared with me.
Your "life" doesn't have to end in death...you can live on by sharing yourself with someone who needs you...someone like me <3
