There are so many things that have blessed me over the years, and so many things that have made me feel so blessed. But these past few days have been the most blessed days of my life. It’s hard to explain how amazing it feels to know that one day soon my dad will be running around with my children, when there were days when I didn’t know if he would even hold my children. To know that we’ll have coffee dates soon and he’ll be able to finish his thought without having to stop to catch his breath.
I have been so blessed by a family who could give my dad years with my children, years with my mom, and years of coffee dates with me.
But in the midst of feeling so blessed I can’t help but wonder how the donor’s family is coping. I’m constantly praying for them, praying for peace, praying that they know how much their choice has blessed others; have blessed me and my family.
So please take a moment today to pray for my dad’s donor’s family. And every day. Please pray for donor’s families all over. Through their grief they make a choice to bless others sometimes not even knowing how much of a blessing it really is.
Mom and I are resting tonight at the hotel. Dad is doing well, as well as we can expect. Thank you again for all your prayers and positive thoughts. They are truly a blessing to us.
