Seven years ago I was sitting in the hospital being treated like a superhero, but all I really wanted to do was visit with him; I wanted to know that he was ok, to make sure that all of this wasn’t done in vain. Turns out, it wasn’t! He was fine. Better than fine; he was alive, and his body was fully functioning with its new kidney. I thank God everyday for speaking to me and telling me to do this. I thank God that my dear friend is still alive and well; no more dialysis, no more extensive doctor’s visits, no more missing church. No more worries about what tomorrow will bring. He has his whole life ahead of him and he owes me only one thing…to live it wholeheartedly and for the Lord above who brought us together.
Here’s to seven years and many, many more!
