Sharing Recipes and Sharing Life



I am aware the insertion of this post in Cooking The Ideas may sound a bit off-topic to all my followers and blog readers.

However I believe sometimes we have to make a stop in life to see where we are standing and which direction we want to go afterwards.

Today, I was reading one of the blogs I follow and I came across this article about Organ Donation. This is a subject I have considered many times during my life, and at first I was afraid but then I realized that it will be very selfish not to. What do you want to have your body for once you have crossed to the other side? It is going to start decomposing the instant you pass away and you will not even be there to do anything about it.

Instead, why not prolonging your life by doing a good hearted action. When there is nothing else that can be done for you, you have to think about other people who may as well, have a family like you, a son to keep hugging, a brother to live for, allowing a kid to keep playing and see what life has to offer, a grandma who will still be able to tell her life stories to her grandsons, etc. Why not giving them the gift of enjoying life a little bit more?

It is a hard choice to make, but it can save many lives. Let´s not be selfish.
I recommend you that you think about it thoroughly and make a conscious choice so that you will not regret it.

Furthermore, I wanted to copy the article here and share it with you and the world; spread the word.

I have previously written about our choice to try to make something positive from Carys’s untimely death. It seemed to the only choice we could make. When I entered that Intensive Care ward, and saw all those beds, each representing a tragedy for another family, when I passed those families in the corridors, how could I not wish that some of them got their prayers answered?

So, even before they turned off the life support we were asked if we would allow organ donation, and I said, unhesitatingly “Yes”. We got a first letter some 3 weeks later telling me of a 34 yr old lady who had been waiting for 4 yrs who now has a kidney, as a 54 yrs who had been on dialysis for 6 yrs. Her liver is helping a 64 yrs old man who is married with a family. A 50 yr married man has her lungs. Today I learnt that her cornea is allowing a 77 lady to perhaps see her grandchildren, and her aortic valve beats in the chest of a 27 yr old who may find love and joy now she is healthy.

How can we not do this? How can we not offer this chance to others when we would have given anything for our prayers to be answered? If you haven’t signed up for organ donation… do it today!
