Gratitude, Sadness, and Joy

Present to so many blessings in my life today: the opportunity to practice and teach yoga, getting my car back from the repair shop, having clean water to drink and nourishing food to eat, having a healthy kidney and pancreas. Wait, there’s something special about this day. 19 years ago on this day my donor’s family generously gave his organs to me and numerous others so that we could have healthy lives. To my donor I send infinite gratitude and love for this precious gift. I never had a chance to meet my donor before he shuffled off this mortal coil, but parts of him live on in me. Every moment of every day serve as a testament to him and his family’s generosity.

If you haven’t thought about organ donation, please consider the question and share your thoughts with your family. It is a gift you can give them to help them make the right decisions to respect your wishes.
