Thoughts on an ever-evolving life

My Heart Aches


The tragic accident in Chattanooga has left my heart heavy and hurting. As we approach the day set aside to be thankful, At least five families will be planning funerals and another dozen more sit next to hospital beds praying for their children.

This past week, I received a phone call that sent my heart racing. My son had been in a car accident. Both cars were totaled, but all parties walked away. We were lucky. The families in Chattanooga were not all as blessed.

It also brought to mind that on Thanksgiving, eight years ago, we received a letter. My mother in law had died in August and it was from the organ donation organization at the hospital. It was a letter from the recipient of my mother in laws corneas. She was the mother of two small children and had lost her eyesight two years earlier, due to a rare eye infection. The transplant had worked and for the first time in two years, she would watch her children open their gifts on Christmas morning. I can’t tell you how that made us all feel. Our loss was unavoidable but this family had given us a reason to feel a tiny bit better about our pain. If you are not an organ donor, PLEASE consider it. Talk with your family, and let them know your wishes. My mother in law did, and we have a lovely letter we will cherish forever because of her selflessness.

So, as you gather with family, please keep these families in your thoughts and remember just how lucky you truly are. My heart, prayers and love go out to these families.

  4. As a quilter, I already saw posts from blogs I follow urging us to send quilt blocks to be pieced and quilted for these families. We are all called to spread our compassion to those that need it. Thank you for keeping this message alive here on WordPress in our little community. One never knows when this could be me, or any of us.
