compassion, defined

Girly asked me today if I was an organ donor. Out of the blue. I am, of course.

"Am I?"

Good God in Heaven, how can I even ponder such a concept?

If the unthinkable happened, and parts of you could be used to make another child, another family, whole again, without hesitation yes...

And as my eyes filled with tears at the very thought, she reached out to comfort me.

"Good", she said with a smile on her face.

She is something, that Girly of ours...

She's a sweet one. Along with her mom.

Kids do come up with some of the funniest questions.

Girlie sure sounds like a sweetheart ;).

We're organ donors, too - and without hesitation.
