  • The GIFT OF LIFE.......

    I received a gift in Nov 2010.
    It came from someone I never knew.
    It came with no card, ribbon or bows, But sent to me that's all I know.
    It didn't arrive in a box or sack, And is a gift I would never send back. The gift in size is rather small Compared to its power to conquer all.
    I'll never hold this gift in my hand, It's given to people throughout the land...
    This beautiful gift has set me free, What a precious gift and given to me.
    This gift was given out of selfless love, And delivered to me with help from above.
    These gifts are so priceless, valuable and few.
    When you know of this gift, you will agree too.
    With this gift I can hold my head high To dream the impossible and reach for the sky.
    This gift has taught me to scream and shout, Now let me tell you what this gift is about.
    This gift will not be taken in strife The gift I speak of is that of LIFE.
    The gift of life handed me a key, It opened doors and set me free.
    Organs aren't needed at your final destination.
    Leave them on Earth without hesitation.
    Every human will someday be called to come home, Your organs may stay and continue to roam.
    No need for organs in the heavens above, Leave them on Earth for others to live & love.
    Now that all has been said and doneā€¦.. Please DONATE your organs and give life to at least 8.
    I received the GIFT OF LIFE on Nov 9, 2010 thanks to my wonderful donor Laura and her family!

        Excellent! You have made me change my mind about whether or not I should donate my organs when that time comes. I will check the "Yes -- Organ Donor" box next time I'm asked!

              Love it Marina! As soon as I found out that I had kidney disease, my beloved husband signed up to be an organ donor. And YOU are a walking testament to exactly what being an organ donor is all about, a truly selfless and beautiful act of love and kindness for each other!

                Thank you so much for all the replies to this thread.

                I do have to admit it really is BEAUTIFUL..............
                I do have to fess up..........I can't take credit for something I didn't write.

                One of my fb friends posted it, I simply borrowed it to share it with you guys.

                I wish I had written it though!
