No, this is not a post about the absolutely fantastic Twilight series. Its about the fall blood drive that my company runs each year. Something that I never thought was really important until my little munchkin was in need of it.
I remember the doctor telling us that Ella needed a blood transfusion. I remember thinking about all the opportunities that I passed up at work to give blood. I remember the terrible feeling I had just thinking of all those emails that I had erased without even giving it a second thought. I thought I was just too busy.
Well, I have changed since then. I now save the blood drive notification email. I put the date and time into my schedule. Yesterday, my reminder popped up on my screen. I smiled as I took the elevator downstairs, thinking of that little ball of fire at home, probably running and screaming through the backyard with her blond curls bouncing around, and I hoped that a little of bit of my blood may help give to some other family what was given to us.
