The life of an ordinary woman, who'd been given an extraordinary gift. The Gift of Sight. This is my story and my life.
The morning could not have been more perfect this past Saturday. A tad chilly, but not so much so, that it was horrible to have to stand it. Believe me, it wasn’t long before I removed my light jacket and tied it around my waist from overheating.
The last two days, I have been pretty sore. But that’s because I didn’t have time to train and build myself up for the race and that long three mile course.
In the end, every ache and pain, every muscle strain, and every Advil popped (or muscle relaxant rubbed in) was well worth it.
Because my oldest daughter, who’s twelve, and I helped promote a wonderful thing. Organ/Tissue/Eye Donation. And all of the proceeds pulled in from registration, and from private donations went to Donate Life (Virginia chapter), to LifeNet, and to other programs that educate and bring awareness to the need for Organ Donors. And also some is set aside to help aid financially, the patients that have little to no health insurance to help pay some of their transplant surgery bill.
