Do you know what today is? It’s my kidneyversary!/World Lupus Day

Today, five years on May 10, 2006  I received the best gift of my life…a kidney transplant.  It came right on time which so happened to be mother’s day and World Lupus Day.  What a wonderful gift to give me, a second chance and the gift of life. I remember as they rolled me into the operating room i saw that wonderful pink kidney. That beautiful gift over there was given to me by someone who had never met me or didn’t know anything about me. That family’s decision saved my life!  Every year my kidneyversary is as important as my birthday.  I thank GOD for this wonderful gift he has provided for me.  Know matter how much the rest of my body has broken down my kidney keeps going strong and for that I am grateful.

Today, May 10 is also world Lupus day, a day to raise awareness for lupus and lupus research.  Do you know someone one with lupus?  In honor of them why not make a donation to lupus research. More information can be found at  www.worldlupusday.org.
