A lot of times I feel like I get really caught up in what is going on with my own life I don’t take time to be grateful and live in the moment. On a long bike ride Saturday morning while listening to an episode of Paleo Magazine Radio, George from Civilized Caveman Creations was talking about his campaign for a 29 year old man in need of a heart transplant. He described how he felt compelled to help this man who was in need of a heart transplant but had medical bills stacking up. It reminded me of a friend who is in a similar medical situation. He is a friend of my husband’s who I don’t know well, but I know deserves a fair shot at getting the medical care he deserves.
My point is, I felt pretty crummy about stressing about closing on our house and agonizing over whether or not to eat a donut when there are people who don’t even have the option of living the healthy life they deserve. That being said, I wanted to include the link to my friend Pat’s donation page. Hopefully one of my 5 followers may feel compelled to give a little to his cause. He is awaiting a liver transplant, and you can read more about his story on the website. I know I don’t have that many followers on my blog (sorry Pat!), but I figured sharing it was better than not sharing it.
Even if you don’t donate, take the time to be thankful for the things you have, or think about a cause feel is worth donating to. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our own daily lives, but just taking a few moments to look around and be thankful for the gorgeous fall sunshine through the trees and all the other beautiful things in our lives is truly worth it.
