Blue and Green Walk

This past Sunday I proudly walked in the Boston Blue and Green Walk .  It was to raise awareness for Organ and Tissue Donation.  My dear, sweet, momma was the recipient  of not 1, but 2 Kidneys.  She also received countless blood transfusions.  The need for organ donation is so high.  So many people are on numerous lists waiting and waiting and waiting for organs.  Life saving organs.

My mother was such a believer in organ donation and everyone being organ donors.  We were so very lucky that we had family that donated to my mom. My aunt and my cousin truly gave the gift of life.  They alone gave us so many more years with her that we would not have had with her.  There can never be enough thanks to them for those gifts.

It was such a positive day , full of inspirational stories.  We completed the walk, it ended up being about 2.75 miles. I had a huge NSV ( non scale victory ) where I actually did the walk without struggling.  Like for really reals, I did it and didn’t die, lol. Huge for me.  Maybe I am starting to turn a corner.

Here are some pictures from our day :

 

I only found out about this walk a few weeks ago, next year, I hope to get a big team together for it.

It seems like this month has just sucked on a whole.  I’m looking forward to some better days ahead.  Sometimes, we all just need a break.  I feel like that at some point we are all due to for that break.  I think its my turn.

Gotta Keep Swimming!!!!
