Sometimes it takes something so little to make you realize how lucky and blessed you are. We tend to take for granted the simple things, the little things, the every day things. Sometimes you really do have to take a step back. Even though there are so many things that make us crazy, tired, worn out, we really do need to step back and appreciate the fact that we are able to enjoy some every day mundane things.
My 12 yr old son has a good friend named Jim. Jim's mother is waiting for a liver. This time last year, Jimmy wasn't around at all because they were forever down the shore at their house they have down there. Lucky them! Now this year, they are tied to the house because his mother can't even walk up and down steps let alone go away for a weekend or even a day. She can't take long car rides and she can't be too far in case she gets that call.
I think it's really hard for this 12 yr old boy to have to go through this. I know it's hard on his mother and the rest of his family but I can't imagine what thoughts and fears are going through his head. I just wish a liver would become available for her.
Think about being a donor. Just take that one little step that might make a huge difference to a family, to a 12 yr old boy, to a child, to a mother, to a daddy, to someone who just really needs your help!
