Somewhere tonight, another family looked beyond their tragedy and gave someone's life back to him.

My husband learned tonight that his uncle is probably in surgery this very minute, having the most important surgery of his life. This surgery IS his life.

Somewhere, another family lost someone important to them. We don't know who or where. All we know is they loved this person enough to follow their wishes and share their life.

My husband's uncle is receiving a donor kidney right now. Because of another family's indescribably generosity during their time of loss, he will live. Please say a prayer for our donor family; I can only hope they are comforted by knowing what they have done.

Congratulations to your hubby's uncle on getting the gift of life from someone. New organs are really so hard to come by. Good luck to the family and hope all goes well. Keep us updated on how he is doing.

now that's what you call real love, giving someone else a chance at life, especially someone you don't even know in the midst of your own sadness. will pray for both families.

CONGRATULATIONS on your "THINKING AWARD." i come via alpha dude's blog.
