|An Open Letter To My Donor Family /// SACRIFICE|
May 10, 2014
I can never forget someone who gave me so much to remember forever. Each heart beat is filled with gratitude and love! ~ DAP
Today, May 10, 2014 marks the 7th anniversary of the death of my anonymous donor. The words that follow are for the family that gave everything on that day.
I was unconscious and near death laying in a hospital that tragic day, May 10, 2007, when your son-daughter-brother-sister-husband-wife gave everything. Your loss was tragic and heart breaking and I mourn with you each and every day.
Each and every day, I pray for this person that gave me a happy, loving heart
and ultimately saved my life.
Each and every day, I pray for the family of this magnificent person and hope God is blessing them.
Each and every day, I give thanks to God, to my donor and to my donor family. It is a deep and complete feeling of gratitude that most would never comprehend.
Each and every day, I weep for you, and I grieve with you.
Each and every day, I am in awe of your loved one. To have their heart beating in my chest. It is a privilege and an honor to be the guardian of their heart and their love.
Each and every day I think of you, the family
.. and I hold those thoughts close to my heart for you to hear the beautiful rhythm of life and love.
Each and every day I know that from your tragedy, sprung hope for another family, my own family. And, I am responsible for passing along that hope to others, each and every day.
Thank you so much for giving me the ultimate gift
you gave me life!
May God Bless you always.
Love always, DAP
As we give, we find that sacrifice brings forth the blessings of heaven and in the end, we learn that it was no sacrifice at all.
