Quote of the Week #53

I admit that had a wicked case of writer’s block today–I sat for a long time, wondering what to write for my weekly quote. I pondered my recent encounters with people at the gym, the grocery store, thought about the fabulous novel I am reading, reminisced about my childhood, considered the view out my window at the still and frozen landscape. And still, nothing. The lack of inspiration was disturbing so rather than dwell on it, I decided to get on with other tasks on my ever-growing “to do list.” At some point late in the day I stumbled on a video that had me looking for the tissues. Wow, is it powerful! We all can make an amazing difference in the lives of many people.

So, I will share it with you… Then check out my quote of the week below.

“Don’t think of organ donation as giving up a part of yourself to keep a total stranger alive. It’s really a total stranger giving up almost all of themselves to keep part of YOU alive. ” 

and another great one:


Are you an organ donor or the recipient of someone else’s organ? Have you checked the box on your license and told your family of your decision? What did you think of the video? As always, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts! Use the comment box below to send me a note.

    I am very proud to have been an organ donor all of my adult life. I saw how wonderful it can be for those in need. For them, it is a matter of life and death. Talk to your friends and family and be sure that everyone knows and respects your wishes.

      Yes, it is an amazing thing to be; good for you. And yes, you are right, it is so important to talk to your family about your wishes since they ultimately will have the power to make sure it happens. Thanks for writing!
