Quote of the Day:  

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt, You learn by Living; Eleven keys for a more fulfilling life

Musical Link

– I thought this seemed appropriate today, and no one does it better than the classic – Stand By Me, Ben E King (1961)

When the night has come, and the way is dark,
And that moon is the only light you see.
No I won’t be afraid, no I-I-I won’t be afraid
Just as long as the people come and stand by me.

    I love this song. Very appropriate at a time like this. I am the antithesis of my husband. HA!!! We are very different. But at least when it came to kidneys we were not. Maybe it’s only on the outside.

      Are all spouses the antithesis of one another? I know of two other couples where the wife has donated a kidney to her husband. One lives in town and she is almost an olympic stage weightlifter. Amazing woman, her husband just received his second kidney last July and it went super smooth. They are now building a new home and he is active!
      I suspect you and your husband have a heart connection. ♥
