Friday Fictioneers 1st October

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess for the Friday Fictioneers photo challenge. This week our photo is provided by Dale Rogerson. Thanks to them both!

It was a special day, one he had been looking forward to for weeks.
He had so many thanks to give, he didn’t know where to start.
Probably to a young teenager and his family who agreed to allow his body organs to be donated.
For the first time in 8 years, John could see the dawn thanks to a cornea transplant.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    What an uplifting story! Well done!

    What a greater tribute than to be the recipient of an organ transplant. I do hope, when the time comes, that someone can use something of this empty shell. My husband has decided the same. I am very very thankful for the small piece of bone that I was given. See how I’m able to type with all TEN fingers…I would be lost without the one. It’s a small thing, but to me, it is the world.

    • I can imagine Bear. My hands, although full of arthritis now, allow me to play the piano and make my cards, so a blessing indeed to have all 10 digits.
      Hubby and I are like you, and if any of our organs are of use to anyone after we die, they are welcome.

  11. What a touching tale, to see the rising sun after all those years.

  12. How amazing it would be to see after so many years without. I can only imagine how thankful I would be to the one who donated. It’s an incredible thing to do. Very well written!

  13. Isn’t it amazing how much good one can do when one can no longer ‘do’ anything? Thank you for this lovely bit of story about hope and visions for what’s possible.
