Many of you don’t like to watch YouTube videos on blogs and I don’t blame you, I have mixed feeling about them myself, but I would like to convince YOU to watch this one, please.
We were sitting in our living room yesterday in the morning and watched the Sunday Morning show, like we always do. Still in our pj’s, we were trying to wake up; it was a lazy Sunday morning, the way it is suppose to be. I don’t cry much; I learned a long time ago that talking works better than tears, but when I watched this commercial for the first time I teared up. It literally took my breath away and tears were running down my cheeks. I turned around and looked at my husband, he had tears in his eyes as well, we both swallowed hard and reached for a tissue.
Animal lovers might react differently to this commercial, but I think the message that it sends is strong either way.
I am only around and typing today, because of blood transfusions. They were available and waiting for me, when I unexpectedly needed them and I felt so guilty afterwards when I heard about it, because I had never given blood myself. It had never crossed my mind. The kindness of strangers saves lives every day. I can’t donate anymore, but I would urge everybody to at least to consider donating blood. I think everybody with a driver licence should give blood at least once, but that’s just my opinion.
A good friend of mine received a liver transplant last year in January. He had a few struggles at first, but now -only a year later- he is doing great and will be able to walk his daughter down the aisle this fall.
The kindness of strangers makes a difference every day!
