Hugs for Meme
I get "blown away" by things sometimes. When the winds are very strong I sometimes have to hold on tight to the leash aTtached to my little world. There are times when I meet someone who lifts me off my feet. The young Mother I met on the morning of Good Friday touched me deeply when she gave me one of the wrist bands she and her family are using to raise funds for a kidney transplant for her Grandmother who has been a long time on dialysis. The wrist bands say "Hug a Meme". The young woman is going to give her kidney to her Grandmother, her Meme, and help raise the money for the surgery. That's love. That's truly giving of oneself more than I have done in walking to help bring awareness to diabetes. It's people like her that deserve the highest honors, the most praise and warmest hugs. I hope them the best with all my heart.
