Theme Thursday.....GIFT

GIFT

This is the time of year
when
everyone is thinking of
what
is the best gift I can give.

I know that this is not
something everyone
wants
to think about at this time of year,
but
you can give a gift that is free,
and
it may someday save a life.

What,
you ask is this gift?

It is the gift of becoming an organ donor,
which
is free because you just mark it on your license renewal,
or
some states let you go online
and
change it today.

Please
think about this,
maybe someone you know
will
be saved because someone
became
an organ donor
today.

As a side note, I had to make the choice to donate my father's organs
when he passed away many years ago. I know how hard it can be for
one's family to have to make that choice. Making it for them is the best
gift you can give to your family members. I will never meet the people I helped,
but just knowing I did this, somehow gives me comfort.

  4. I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting my comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

    The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, or those that have all seem a little worse for wear (if you catch my drift). All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, frankly, smell funny. In addition, they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape.

    I now have my two sons pulling the sleigh, but they are struggling. I’ve been told that it’s a big ask for a three and five year old, but I made it this far with a couple of mangy chooks, an arthritic wallaby and three peculiar wombats! Unfortunately, we lost all bar one wombat over Pittsburgh (and the sole survivor is exhibiting clear signs of PTSD).

    Anyway, all the way down here at the bottom of the world (A.K.A. Tasmania), and from myself, Jen, Henry and Ezra, please have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus/Ashura and a happy New Year!

    I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies/ prawn cocktails/ currywurst are all as tasty as can be!

  5. Hello Mrsupole
    My first time here & hopefully not my last.

    The gift of organ(s) is beyond an unselfish & special gift. It takes real courage too.
    A thought-provoking post indeed.
    Thanks for sharing & for the great theme this week.

    Thanks also for your visit & lovely comment. I'm looking forward to the next one to see how creative I can be. ;-)

    My very best wishes to you & your family for the Holidays.

    An Inscription Of Love

  8. You are so right. I can't think of a more important gift- or a more difficult gift go give (which makes it even more precious). May we never need this gift, and may we all have the strength and selflessness to give it.

    Wishing you a happy holiday and happy new year!
